Modi was addressing a public meeting in his Lok Sabha constituency.

Earlier this month, Modi while replying to the Motion of Thanks to the President's address in the Lok Sabha had called the CAA protests "a road to anarchy" and that "protest marches, violence, and arson" against a law duly passed and notified by Parliament will "create a problem for the country".
