The Way BJP is changing laws, it’ll turn India into police state: Manish Tewari

Nawanshahr, July 27, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)

Senior Congress leader and Sri Anandpur Sahib MP, Manish Tewari today alleged that the Bhartiya Janata Party led National Democratic Alliance government appeared to be planning to turn the country into a “police state”.

Interacting with reporters during the sidelines of a public function in Jadla near here today, Tewari said, the NDA government has completely undermined the Right to Information Act with obvious intention to hinder transparency in the functioning of the government.

“The way the government has hastened through to get the legislation amending the RTI act passed, revealed its ill intentions”, he alleged, adding, it was a recessive step that will take country backwards in terms of enforcing transparency and accountability of the governments in power.

He said similarly, the NIA Amendment Bill will lead to abuse of power and return of the draconian laws which will turn the country virtually into a police state.

Replying to another question, Tewari strongly disagreed with the suggestion that there was any disillusionment among the workers. He maintained that the Congress government in the state led by Capt Amarinder Singh has actually made a difference in the lives of people and the results had started showing up.

“Ten years of the Akali-BJP misrule had undermined all the institutions and the state had been pushed to bankruptcy”, he said, while claiming that not only has Capt Amarinder managed to redeem the situation but also taken several welfare measures like farmers’ debt relief, generation of jobs and curbing the scourge of drugs against all odds. He said, Punjab, two years from now will be totally different what the Akalis has left it like.

Among others Angad Singh MLA, Rana Kuldeep Singh Jadla, Chaman Singh Bhan Majara, Harjinder Singh, Madam Tejinder Kaur President Distt. Mahila congress, Samandeep Sangha, Kewal Singh Khatkar, Suresh Rana, Joginder singh were also present.
