Cong protest against CAB an act of desperation: Brig Gupta

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Dec 12: Congress is unable to reconcile to the fact that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is fulfilling all the promises it made to the people thus cementing the trust the people have posed in the party. "There is a visible difference between how the governments functioned during the Congress regime and now with people willing to question the inability of Congress to take hard decisions in national interest despite the fact that it ruled for so long," said Brig Anil Gupta, Spokesperson of the Party. Congress believed only in appeasement and vote bank politics with the national interest being secondary while turning a blind eye to the burning issues facing the nation.
Reacting to the protest march taken out by local Congress leaders against CAB, Brig Gupta asked if anybody could deny that the partition of India took place on religious lines and could only take place after Congress agreed to the division of the nation. It were the personal ambitions of two individuals namely Nehru and Jinnah that led to the worst human holocaust recorded in the history, asserted Brig Gupta.
Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) provides for fast-tracking of citizenship to the refugees belonging to six identified minorities in the three theocratic states neighbouring India namely Islamic Republics of Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan who had entered India till 31 December, 2014. The Bill has nothing to do with existing Indian citizens belonging to any religion and hence cannot be termed against the idea of India or discriminatory as claimed by the Congress, clarified Brig Gupta. By objecting to the Bill, Congress is suggesting that Rohingyas and Bangladeshi illegal immigrants should also be given Indian citizenship. "It is once again unfortunate that Congress is eyeing the vote bank at the cost of national security," he added.
