New Delhi, Dec 30 (IANS) In order to garner people''s support on the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday launched a Twitter campaign.

BJP leader Meenakashi Lekhi tweeted: "Don''t let the power of reason cloud the mind or allow the thinking be hijacked by cruel fanatics. Proud to be an Indian and have a heart to support who continue to suffer in modern times barbarity of Ghazanis, Bukshikans like iconoclasts. #IndiaSupportsCAA."

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."

BJP''s IT cell head, Amit Malviya wrote: "''Those worried about where these persecuted refugees would be accommodated, should first make rooms in their hearts!'' says this youngster who himself belongs to a Multani migrant family." He also posted a video clip of the youngster with the tweet.

Union minister Smriti Irani retweeted a post from Malviya in which a black-and-white clip of refugees from Bangladesh was tagged.

It read: "You will be shocked to hear the travails of those who fled East Pakistan and are now settled in Bihar''s Motihari district. Those opposing the CAA are enemies of humanity. #IndiaSupportsCAA."

A tweet by BJP leader Bhupendra Yadav read: "Spread facts, not myth. The #CAA does not target any religious community from abroad. #IndiaSupportsCAA."
