While responding to Hime Minister Amit Shah's question of whether the Congress party is against or in support of the abrogation of Article 379, Tewari said, "Ek angrezi ki kitaab hai, har cheez kali aur safed nahi hoti (according to an English novel, everything is not in black and white). There are fifty shades of grey in between."
