Gandhi would have observed fast at Shaheen Bagh, had he been alive: Digvijaya SinghJanuary 26, 2020 12:27
Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh said that Mahatma Gandhi would have observed fast against the Citizenship Amendment Act at Shaheen Bagh in the national capital, had he been alive.
"If Mahatma Gandhi were alive today, he would have observed a 'Bhookh Hadtal' (fast) at Shaheen Bagh," Singh said.
Peaceful protests are being carried out at Shaheen Bagh in New Delhi for over a month against the newly amended citizenship law and proposed National Register of Citizens.
Talking about the abrogation of Article 370, Singh said that Mahatma Gandhi would have also protested carried out a 'Padyatra' from Lal Quila in New Delhi to Lal Chowk in Jammu and Kashmir.
"I believe that if Gandhiji were alive today, he would have started a Padyatra today from Lal Quila to Lal Chowk. To address the distrust among the people living in the Valley after the abrogation of Article 370 was the biggest responsibility of those who believe in the unity in diversity in India," he said.
