AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on December 10 reacted on Shiv Sena supporting Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019 in Lok Sabha, while being cautious in Rajya Sabha. He termed Shiv Sena's stand as "Bhangra politics". "They write "secular" in common minimum programme, this bill is against secularism and Article 14. It is politics of opportunism," said Owaisi. On December 09, Owaisi tore a copy of Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019 in Lok Sabha. Before tearing up the copy of the CAB, he said, "This is going to be another partition. This bill is against the Constitution of India and disrespect to our freedom fighters. I tear the bill. It is trying to divide our country."
