Passage of quota bill a ‘strong answer’ to opponents: PM
Solapur: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said passage of quota bill a ‘strong answer’ to those spreading lies for petty political gains.
The bill provides 10 per cent quota for the general category poor in jobs and education.
He said it is a ‘strong answer’ by Parliament to those spreading lies on the matter.
Addressing a public rally here on Wednesday, Modi hoped the bill is passed in Rajya Sabha by members respecting the public opinion.
Dwelling upon Citizenship Bill which aims at seeking Indian citizenship to non-Muslims from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan, Modi said, “I want to assure the people of Assam and North East that their rights will not be hurt after passage of the bill.”
