New Delhi: The BJP working President, J. P. Nadda, today, asked the state presidents of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal, Kerala, and Punjab to stage protests against Congress, TMC, and left parties against spreading rumours and lies about the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
The passing of the CAA has led to violent protests in Assam and West Bengal and in many other parts of India. Opposition parties like Congress, Trinamool Congress (TMC), and the CPI(M) have given petitions in the Supreme Court against the act.
In Kerala, the left parties, Congress, Muslim League and many other communal organizations have come together to oppose the CAA. They have decided to hold a hartal on 17 December to protest against the act. The Chief Minister of Kerala has said that he will not implement the act in the state. He is joined by his counterparts in Punjab and West Bengal.
The BJP working President wants the party activists to launch a protest to expose the lies that these parties are spreading in name of CAA. BJP leaders are accusing these parties of trying to bring out a communal divide among the people by spreading false claims.
