Protesters including Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims and Christians from Amritsar have written to PM Modi urging him to revoke the newly implemented Citizenship Amendment Act. Reacting to this, BJP spokesperson said all those who are opposing CAA in this letter are paid actors being sponsored by Congress and its stooges.
Amritsar: Hindu, Sikh, Muslim and Christians from Amritsar have jointly written a letter in blood to Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding the Citizenship Amendment Act and NRC. The protesters raised slogans and marched on the streets.
The protesters also said that before implementing a law, the Modi government should think about the 130 crore people in the country. The protesters also added that due to the new law in the nation, several protests and violence have erupted.
"The new law should be removed as soon as possible, otherwise, violence will increase in the state", a protester said.
K Krishna Saagar Rao, chief spokesperson, BJP, said, "Congress party has started playing shadow boxing on CAA, sensing the backlash of the majority community to the deviant divisive politics they are driving across the nation."
He added that the multi-faith people letter from Amritsar on CAA is one such tactic to portray this new scheme of Congress. All those who are opposing CAA in this letter are paid actors being sponsored by the Congress party and its stooges.
Nation-wide protests have been intensified after President Ram Nath Kovind gave his assent to the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) on December 13, which sought to give Indian citizenship to non-Muslim immigrants who faced persecution in three neighbouring countries – Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan and entered India before December 2014.
