The Congress on Sunday hit out at the Modi government over bestowing the Padma Shri on singer-musician Adnan Sami and asked why Kargil War veteran Mohmmad Sannaullah was declared a foreigner through the NRC in Assam, while the son of a Pakistan Air Force pilot has been conferred with one of India’s highest civilian honour.

Hitting out at the Centre, Congress spokesperson Jaiveer Shergill said, “Kargil War veteran and retired army officer Mohammad Sanaullah who fought for India declared ‘foreigner’ after NRC and Adnan Sami whose family fought against India honoured with Padma Shri — This is the magic of NRC and government chamchagiri!” “Is contribution ‘Yogdan’ to society or BJP government ”gungan” (praise) new criteria? Is this New India?” Shergill asked.
