Debagram/Hanshkhali, Dec. 18: Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh on Wednesday has termed the arson and the violent protest against the amended citizenship law as an act of ‘‘sedition’.
Speaking to reporters in Nadia’s Debagram, Ghosh said, “This violence unleashed by the protestors is one type of sedition. There is no logic behind such violence. Nobody has suffered any loss. Nobody has also been robbed off their rights… The act is to ensure citizenship to a section of refugees. So the people who have been protesting such an act and fomenting tension has been doing so out of their political compulsion for votes only. This is a sort of sedition and these people cannot be Indian citizens in any way”.
He also stated that the clear the misconception, the BJP would soon launch an outreach programme.
“We would soon launch an outreach programme for the people belong to the Muslim community since Trinamul Congress and some other political parties have created panic among them for their political interest. We would make them aware of it”, Ghosh added.
The state BJP president advised the party workers to communicate with people so that all misconceptions about the CAA could be cleared.
Ghosh later addressed a public meeting in Hanshkhali where he reiterated that nobody should feel any threat of their existence in the country in the wake of implementation of the CAA. “The amended citizenship act is not to rob your right to live in this country, rather ensure your citizenship here”, Ghosh said.
“People who have been protesting the law and misleading others like Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee would in immediate future also accept the law as she did in case of demonetization and GST. “Initially she protested against the both, tried to create panic among people and eventually accepted the both. She would do the same thing in case of CAA also”, Ghosh told the party supporters.
