New Delhi: Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Saturday said that dissent and consensus are part of democracy but one cannot fetch their rights by blocking the road.
Naqvi was targeting the Shaheen Bagh protest which has been longing for over two months.
“This is a dilemma between rights and duties, they (protesters) understand their rights but not the duties. Dissent and consensus are part of democracy but you cannot get your rights by blocking the road,” Naqvi said at an event.
People have been engaged in a sit-in protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act, National Population Register (NPR) and National Register of Citizens (NRC) at Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh, blocking Noida-Kalindi Kunj road.
