New Delhi: Recently, BJP shared a number for the public to show support for the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act 2019. On 3rd January 2020, Union Home Minister, Amit Shah also tweeted the number. Appealing to the people, he wrote that those who support the step taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to give justice and rights to minorities of Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan who have entered India should give miscall on phone number 8866288662.
