TDN World Desk: In a heated debate in Lok Sabha Congress leader Manish Tewari said that that the foundation for two-nation theory was laid by Savarkar in a Hindu Mahasabha session.

Tewari, who is an lawyer and MP from Anandpur Sahib, was speaking in Lok sabha on Monday opposing the Citizenship Amendment Bill 2019. Mr Tewari took the Savarkar reference to adress Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s allegation that Congress was responsible behind the partition of the country.

“Today Home Minister said that Congress is responsible for partition on the basis of religion. I want to make it clear that the foundation for two-nation theory was laid in 1935 in Ahmedabad by Savarkar in a Hindu Mahasabha session, and not Congress,” he said.

Today Manish Tewari fiercely opposed the Citizenship Amendment Bill 2019 introduced by Union home Minister Amit Shah.

Putting argument over CAB, Mr Tewari, the former Information and Broadcasting Minister, said,”This is against Article 14, Article 15, Article 21, Article 25 and Article 26 of the Indian Constitution. This bill is unconstitutional and against basic right of equality.”
