Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday urged students and youths to join him at Rajghat to protest against the "hate and violence unleashed by Modi-Shah" and show that they will not allow India to be "destroyed by hatred". Meanwhile, strong protests were seen in Chennai as P Chidambaram and MDMK's Vaiko led a mega rally against the new Citizenship Act which they are calling "discriminatory". In New Delhi, Rahul has called for a protest rally against the new Citizenship Act passed by Parliament. "Dear Students and Youth of India, It's not good enough just to feel India. At times like these it's critical to show that you're India and won't allow India to be destroyed by hatred. "Join me today at 3 PM at Raj Ghat, to protest against the hate and violence unleashed on India by Modi-Shah," he said on Twitter.

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra also appealed to people to join them at Rajghat in "this fight for saving" the Constitution.
