NEW DELHI: The Senior leader of Congress, Kapil Sibal laid a veiled attack on Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday saying that he hasn't spoken a word or has been seen amidst all the chaos that the country is facing.
Talking to his Twitter account Sibal wrote, "While: 1) locked down in our homes; 2) lakhs of migrants walk to reach home; 3) struggling to survive at home; and 4) many can't reach home. Home Minister has neither spoken nor been seen."
Taking a jibe at Shah that he hasn't even pressed a button, the Congress leader further wrote, "Not pressed any button yet we feel the current of government's decisions at home!"

1) locked down in our homes
2) lakhs of migrants walk to reach home
3) struggling to survive at home
4) many can’t reach home
Home Minister has neither spoken nor been seen
Not pressed any button
We feel the current of government’s decisions at home !
The line referred to Shah's speech during the Delhi Assembly Elections when he said that while voting, people should press the button so hard that the current should be felt at Shaheen Bagh, the site where many women were protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). However, out of 70 Assembly seats in Delhi, BJP could only manage eight and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had a clear win with the majority of seats.
