Expressing his dissatisfaction over the comment made, the barrister said, "India is not a chicken's neck to be broken. If someone is making such statement, I don't' accept it. I condemn such rubbish." The MP was speaking during a Poets' protest held on the eve of the republic at Hyderabad.
Sharjeel Imam, one of the organisers of anti- Citizenship Amendment Act protest at Shaheen Bagh had earlier suggested cutting off Assam and northeast from India.
