Her remarks have come when Rahul Gandhi has opened a new front against the BJP and the RSS. "Why didn't the congress think about 'Save India, Save Constitution' when it was in power and blatantly disregarding the welfare of people? At that time Dalits, Muslims and backward classes did not get Constitutional rights they deserved. It is because of this that BJP came to power..." she said in her tweet.

 In a tweet previous to this, Maywati said that the instead of resorting to 'theatrics' on CAA, the Congress should introspect.

Rahul Gandhi, on Saturday, assumed aggressive stance and warned BJP and the RSS against 'overrunning' culture of the Northeast. He said that Congress will not let this happen.
