Shergill posed 3 questions in the tweet, “First, why Indian army officers like Sanaullah declared foreigners by NRC, while Padma Shri gave to the son of a Pakistani pilot?” Second, is it important for Padmashri to contribute to society or to praise the government? Thirdly, is there a new criterion for Padmashree that the government will do it, you will get Padmashree? ”

At the same time, Congress leader Digvijay Singh welcomed the government’s decision. Digvijay tweeted, “Congratulations to all the celebrities honored with Padma Shri. I am very happy to get the Padma Shri for singer and musician Adnan Sami. I had recommended the government to give him Indian citizenship and the Modi government gave it to him. The government has the right to grant citizenship to any person without religious prejudice. Why then CAA? Just to polarize Indian politics. What will the Modi government do if the oppressed Muslim communities of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh demand Indian citizenship? ”
