Citizenship Amendment Bill in Parliament Winter Session Live: The Bharatiya Janata Pary on Wednesday slammed Sharad Pawar’s Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) for requesting Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray to drop charges against activists in the Bhima Koregaon violence case. Speaking during the Zero Hour in Rajya Sabha, BJP MP Narasimha Rao said there are “attempts to politicise” police investigation in the case.
Union Defence Minister on Wednesday assured the Lok Sabha that Indian forces are vigilant and protecting the country’s borders. His remark comes after Congress gress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury raised the issue of Chinese intrusion in Indian borders. Choudhary said that Pakistan shelters terrorists and China shelters Pakistan and it has started sending ships to Andaman & Nicobar. “We keep aggression in our voice when it comes to Pakistan, then why are we balanced soft towards China?” the Congress leader asked. To this, Rajnath Singh said that Indian security forces are fully capable of facing any challenge and nobody should have a doubt about it. He said that there is no mutually agreed Line of Actual Control (LAC) between India and China. “Due to different perceptions of the LAC, sometimes incidents of incursion occur, I accept it. Sometimes the Chinese Army enters here & sometimes our people go over there,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Union Cabinet has approved the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill. The bill will be tabled in the Parliament by Home Minister Amit Shah next week.
