How Many BJP leaders have resigned over CAA

[Holding Indian Tricolour and reciting the Preamble of the Constitution, thousands are protesting almost on daily basis since December 12, 2019.]

Bhopal/Jalgaon: Some 200 BJP leaders of the party's Minority Cell have so far resigned slamming Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah accusing them of dividing the nation on communal lines for their "cheap" political agenda.

On mass resignation spree, as many as 176 BJP Minority Cell leaders have resigned from the party in Bhopal, Khargone, Guna and other districts of Madhya Pradesh.

Likewise, more than 02 dozen party workers resigned from the BJP in Jalgaon and other districts of Maharashtra, expressing their anger over Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and proposed National Register of Citizens (NRC) and National Population Register (NPR).

"Have you ever seen a government passing a law in Parliament, and then going from door to door seeking support for it? asked Adil Khan, who quit the BJP as its Bhopal district minority cell vice-president on Saturday over the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and the proposed nationwide National Register of Citizens.

"There is already an 11-year-old law in India. When we can give citizenship to people like Adnan Sami through that law, we can also give the rest to other people. Then where is the need to bring CAA?" Javed Baig, media in charge of BJP's minority front said.

The BJP said it "expelled" Baig for "hobnobbing" with groups opposing CAA and NRC.

In Jalgaon, BJP Minority Cell leaders resigned enmass and joined the anti CAA-NRC-NPR protest and relay hunger strike continueing in the city since last three weeks.

"We had joined the BJP believing in PM Modi's Sab Ka Saath, Sab Ka Vikas and Sab ka Vishvash promises. It has now turned out that all these public assertions are mere slogans and the party has a divisive agenda", a BJP Minority Cell President Irfan Noori said.

"By bringing in Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) the Modi government has crossed all limits and there is no merit left in staying with such a party", he added.

People protesting against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) say they are opposing the BJP's political agenda behind the new law, and not the citizenship granted to persecuted people from any faith and any country.

The government say the law is to give citizenship and not to snatch one from any one. However, people are not ready to believe in what the government is saying now. "We have lost the faith in this government", they say.
