Chandigarh, August 4, 2022 (Yes Punjab News)
The Bharatiya Janata Party today asked the Delhi and Punjab Chief Ministers, Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann to apologise for having opposed the Citizen Amendment Act as now their own MP in Rajya Sabha, Harbhajan Singh had sought relocation of Sikh and Hindu community members from Afghanistan to India.
Reacting to Harbhajan Singh’s statement in Rajya Sabha yesterday that the government of India should make arrangements for the Afghan Sikhs and Hindus to come to India, the state BJP General Secretary, Dr Subhash Shrarma said, the BJP government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership was already bringing the minority community members from Afghanistan to India. He said, the ‘swaroops’ of Guru Granth Sahib were also respectfully brought to India after an attack on the Gurdwara there.
He said, this was possible only after the enactment of the CAA, which was so vigorously and vehemently opposed by Kejriwal, Mann and other AAP leaders. “It is good that you have sought relocation of minority community members from Afghanistan to India, but shouldn’t Kejriwal and Mann apologise to the country for having opposed and maligned the CAA when it was enacted?” he asked the AAP leader.
Dr Sharma said, the BJP stands vindicated today on the issue of CAA after the systematic persecution of the members of Sikh and Hindu community in Afghanistan as also in Pakistan. He said, without the CAA such victims of persecution and violence could not be rehabilitated in India nor could they be granted Indian citizenship.
