Hyderabad: Film actor and politician Prakash Raj participated in a protest meeting against the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) at Dharna Chowk on Monday. Speaking at the event, Raj slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah for their conflicting statements on the NRC.

“Shah is speaking the truth when he says NRC will be implemented across the country. But Modi is lying to the people. In any case, there is very little honesty in either of these leaders,” he said.

 

He suggested there could be a register of unemployed people instead.

The Bengaluru-based politician said the Prime Minister had no right to ask citizens for their credentials. “A man who doesn’t have a certificate to prove his degree wants us to submit all our documents to him,” he said.

Raj advised the protesters to maintain their non-violent approach. “The powers that be want us to get violent. They want to crush us. Don’t give them the opportunity,” he said. Other participants in the meeting included academic-activist P.L. Vishweshwar Rao and leaders of student unions and various universities in the city.
