"How literate need to be educated! Perfect example," Lekhi said on Twitter in response, and also posted Nadella's statement issued by

"Precise reason for CAA is to grant opportunities to persecuted minorities from Bangladesh, Pakistan & Afghanistan. How about granting these opportunities to Syrian Muslims instead of Yezidis in USA?" she went on to say.
