Union Minister Giriraj Singh on Saturday said that the Congress, Opposition and members of “tukde-tukde gang” are creating confusion about the new citizenship law in the country.

He said that former PM Indira Gandhi had in 1971 said that India cannot bear the burden of “infiltrators”. “Indira Gandhi said in 1971 that we cannot bear the burden of infiltrators… but she was not able to either bring in a Citizenship Act or to throw out (infiltrators) because she surrendered to Muslim fundamentalists…”
