New Delhi: President Ram Nath Kovind said protests and violence have weakened the country and the government believes that debate strengthens democracy.

Addressing a joint sitting of Parliament on the opening day of the budget session on Friday, President Kovind expressed his anguish over protest across the country since last month against the citizenship law.

President Kovind said: “I am happy that by enacting the Citizenship Amendment Act by both houses of Parliament, the wishes of Mahatma Gandhi have been fulfilled”. Members of the opposition raised slogans against the President’s statements on the citizenship law, even as BJP MPs applauded.
