On CAB: Priyanka Gandhi says India’s ‘tryst with bigotry’ & Owaisi’s message to Indians

The most politically correct and incorrect tweets of the day from across the political spectrum.

New Delhi: As the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019, also called CAB, was passed in the Lok Sabha Monday night, Twitter reflected the violent disagreement of opinion inside and outside Parliament.

Here’s the CAB driver Home Minister Amit Shah and his cheerleader Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In the opposing corner, there’s Congress’ Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. While Priyanka echoed her great-grandfather’s speech at midnight on Independence Day, Rahul assailed those who supported the Bill, which the media saw as a criticism of the Shiv Sena — Congress’s partner in Maharashtra.

Caught in between is the JD(U) after two senior members voiced their concern over the party’s support for the bill.

AIMIM’s Asaduddin Owaisi literally tore into the bill — he ripped it into pieces — during his Lok Sabha speech and sounds angry even now.

Across the border, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan threads together a string of vituperative responses.

Activist Shehla Rashid snarls in outrage but isn’t she being unjust to a man’s best friend?

Writer Chetan Bhagat and comedian Kunal Kamra get into a childish spat over CAB.

Academic Pratap Bhanu Mehta foresees a scary future.

The BJP is fond of rewriting history but this is ridiculous — Bangladesh was created in 1971, right? No wonder this tweet has been taken down.

And lastly, if there is one thing that gets journalist Tavleen Singh mad, it is unwarranted attacks on her son Aatish Taseer.
