New Delhi: Congress leader Manish Tewari on Sunday hit out at the Centre over the violence in Delhi and said the CAA, NPR and NRC represent alienation, radicalisation, and extremism, respectively.

At least 42 people have died and more than 200 were injured in the communal violence that broke out in Delhi.

The Congress leader blamed the Centre for the unrest in the national capital by bringing the new citizenship law and appealed the country to stand against the Citizenship Amendment Act, National Register of Citizens (NRC) and the National Population Register.

"CAA = Alienation; NPR = Radicalisation; NRC = Extremism. This is the rocky and unfortunate road ahead for this Nation. NDA/BJP has sowed the wind. The nation is reaping the whirlwind. Let us stand up to save India. Say no to NPR-NRC," he said in a tweet.

The CAA grants citizenship to Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Parsi, Buddhist, and Christian refugees from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh, who came to India on or before December 31, 2014.
