The office Twitter handle of Union minister Anurag Thakur @Anurag_Office tweeted: "Myth buster. Citizenship Amendment Act 2019. #IndiaSupportsCAA. Read this and clear your doubts."

Himachal Chief Minister Jairam Thakur wrote on @jairamthakurbjp: "There are a lot of rumours and falsity being spread that Indian Muslims will squander their citizenship and the public property being vandalised, it's time to read the act conscientiously and have a civilised discussion."
