Congress leader Sanjay Dutt on Monday criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi's assertion that there would be no going back on the Citizenship Amendment Act, which he said showed his 'dictatorial attitude.'
At a time when there were several issues in the country that needed to be addressed, the Prime Minister was trying to divert the attention of people from various failed economic policies, the AICC secretary told reporters here.
"Lakhs and lakhs of people are up in arms across the country against the CAA and his assertion that there would be no going back on the stand on CAA shows the dictatorial attitude of the Prime Minister," Dutt, the AICC secretary in charge of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry, said.
He also alleged the BJP was making "systematic attacks on the downtrodden and this was clear in the attitude of the party acting in collusion with the RSS to attack the provisions contained in the Constitution ensuring reservation for the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes."
