Senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh charged union Home minister Amit Shah with using the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) as “political instruments to divide the country and polarize society on religious lines”.

Mr Ramesh was in Assam as part of the six-member Congress team set up by party president Sonia Gandhi to meet party workers and people in the eight Northeastern states on the NRC and CAB.

Mr Ramesh also accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah of using the “Trishul” of Central Bureau of Investigation, Enforcement Directorate and Income Tax against their opponents.

“Mr Amit Shah and Mr Narendra Modi have a very powerful instrument in their hands-the Trishul. In the Trishul there are three things to poke you, the CBI, the ED and the Income Tax,” said Jairam Ramesh here on Wednesday.

“We will take a position on the issue inside the Parliament and outside guided by the Constitution”, the Rajya Sabha MP said.

Congress General Secretary Mukul Wasnik and former Uttarakhand chief minister and party in-charge of Assam- Harish Rawat- were present with Mr Ramesh at the press conference.
