Mysuru, December 21:- “Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has introduced the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) just to strengthen the vote bank across the country. Several states will be facing elections soon. To win those elections, BJP is playing this game,” alleged MLA Dr Yatindra Siddaramaiah at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club here on Saturday.
“BJP is dividing the nation on religious lines – Hindus and Muslims. It is a cruel move by BJP. If Section 144 is imposed, people can’t move in groups. But issuing them notice and stopping them is not right. It clearly shows the dictatorship mindset of BJP. MLA UT Khader didn’t say that the people would burn the state. He meant don’t engage in works that lead to unrest in society. His statement was misinterpreted and used to mislead the people,” he added.
Congress city president R Murthy, district president Dr BJ Vijay Kumar and others were present. (KS, NGB)
