Didi a Modi: Are you an envoy from Pakistan?
KOLKATA: digging in Narendra Modi for talking all the time about Pakistan, Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee on Friday he asked the prime minister if he was a Pakistani ambassador. He also questioned the constant use of Pakistan's BJP to silence his critics.
Why do you always compare our country with Pakistan? Said Mamata, who seemed to go directly to Prime Minister Modi. Don't feel ashamed to compare the biggest in the world democracy with Pakistan all the time?
She said it was time for Modi and BJP to stop using Pakistan's rhetoric to silence political opponents. “He (Modi) talks about Pakistan all the time. Why? Is he your ambassador? We are interested in Hindustan. When someone asks for work, he says go to Pakistan. You are the prime minister of India, but keep talking about Pakistan.
The 4.5 km march of Mamata from the Mallaguri neighborhood to Park to protest against CAA came 10 days after BJP held a rally here. Another anti-CAA rally in the hills is scheduled for January 22.
The BJP government has made us all feel insecure, the CM said, referring to the uncertainty among people about issues such as the year limit and the necessary documents as proof of citizenship.
Mamata accused some Union ministers of increasing confusion. They are talking in many voices about CAA, NPR and NRC. The purpose (of this conversation) is to spread the confusion and scare people.
In CAA, he said it was an attempt by the BJP government to deceive people who are already Indian citizens.
Have you not voted for so many years? He asked the multi-ethnic and multi-religious meeting. “The Bengal government has already granted legal recognition to refugee colonies. You already have an address. Now, the Union government wants you to produce your parents' documents. Are you going to accept that?
The CM then referred to the host of documents (voter identification, PAN, Aadhaar) that a citizen is required to link with bank accounts and mobile phone numbers. “Now they say that Aadhaar won't do it, PAN won't do it. What does the government want from us, a BJP amulet? , ”He said before urging the crowd to take an“ anti-CAA-NRC promise ”.
