'Google Search': Congress To PM Modi On 'No Detention Centre' Claim

PM Modi said Indian Muslims have no reason to fear the amended Citizenship Act or NRC.

New Delhi:

Shortly after Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared at an election rally in the national capital on Sunday that “there are no detention centres in India”, the Congress struck back by saying that it wouldn’t take anything more than a simple Internet search to expose his claim.

“Does PM Modi believe Indians can’t do a simple Google search to fact-check his lies? The detention centres are extremely real and will continue to grow as long as this government is in power,” the opposition party posted through its Twitter handle.

Attached to the tweet were three newspaper reports, one of which quoted Union Minister Nityanand Rai as saying that 28 illegal migrants had died in detention centres across Assam.
