A day after BJP MP Swapan Dasgupta was gheraoed and attacked by leftist goons in Visva Bharati University, Congress leader has come out and justified the attack on him as he was trying to education people on Citizenship Amendment Act.

As reported by Times Now, Congress leader Rashid Alvi says that it is not that the Indians do not know how to read and understand laws. “The government does not need to explain and educate people about the laws. People know it very well. They know what CAA means. They know it very well what NRC is. What will be outcome if NRC is implemented. If you try to mislead people, you will have to answer people,” he said.

Taking to Twitter last evening, BJP MP Swapan Dasgupta had said how he was locked into a room with a mob outside.

“There are nearly 70 people locked inside a room in Vishwa Bharati, Santiniketan, for the crime of attending an official, university-convened lecture by me on CAA. This includes the VC. There is a howling mob outside itching for confrontation,” he had tweeted. A few hours after being locked up, the mob dispersed and he was able to leave.
