New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday took out a rally in support of the Citizenship Amendment Act in the streets of Kolkata. Meanwhile, a few hours later, in West Bengal, BJP leader Chandra Kumar Bose has raised questions on this law by tweeting. Chandra Kumar Bose, grandson of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, said that India is a country which is open to religions and communities. Bose tweeted, ‘If the citizenship amendment law is not linked to any religion then why only Hindu, Sikh, Buddha, Christian, Parsi and Jain are included in it. Why Muslims were not included in it like him. It should be transparent.
In another tweet, he wrote, ‘Do not compare or compare India with any other country, because it is an open country of all religions and communities.’ Voices against this law have come out from the BJP, when the BJP is conducting awareness campaign on social media on this level at a large scale.
Let me tell you, at the rally in Kolkata in support of this law, BJP National Executive President JP Nadda on Monday alleged that the Trinamool Congress is misleading people on the amended Citizenship Act (CAA). He claimed that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has always given priority to politics over national interests. Nadda was addressing a rally organized here to “thank” the Modi government on the new citizenship law, although he avoided the issue of nationwide NRC while he was advocating it a few days ago.
He said that this amended law grants citizenship, it does not snatch it as claimed by a group of people. He said, “It is unfortunate that Mamata Banerjee has always prioritized her politics over national interests.” The Trinamool Congress and other opposition parties are misleading people on the amended law. ‘They are only worried about securing (their) vote bank instead of national interest. He is not worried about the pain and discomfort of the refugees who are coming to this country to save their lives and honor. ” Nadda targeted Banerjee for “not taking action” on the violence over the citizenship law in the state.
Nadda took out a march earlier in the day along with other senior leaders of the saffron party, including West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh and the party’s national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya, in support of the amended law. The senior BJP leader claimed, “Muslims have flourished in our country, but Hindus have to face persecution in Pakistan.”
Taking a dig at the opposition parties, Nadda said that Manmohan Singh had appealed to the then Home Minister LK Advani in 2003 to allow minorities of Bangladesh and Pakistan to take refuge in the country. “But now when the government has passed a law to do the same thing, they are opposing it.” According to the amended law, Pakistan is included in the countries from which non-Muslims came and granted Indian citizenship on meeting the standard. Will go.
