Shivanand Tiwari welcomes Nitishs’ anti “Citizenship Amendment Bill” stand

Shivanand Tiwari welcomes Nitishs’ anti “Citizenship Amendment Bill”  stand

Patna, Dec 7 (UNI) Welcoming the stand of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Citizenship Amendment Bill who announced to oppose it, Senior RJD leader Shivanand Tiwari said that Mr Kumar is expected not to repeat his symbolic opposition on this issue as he had done earlier in case of article 370 and triple talaq.

Suspecting the modalities of anti stand of Nitish Kumar over Citizenship Amendment Bill, Mr Tiwari said here today that Mr Kumar had only symbolically adopted stand anti to the abolition of article 370 from Indian Constitution. He said that the MPs of Nitish Kumars’ party Janata Dal (U) had indirectly assisted the BJP by walking out of the Parliament at the time of voting on the issue.

Shivanand Tiwari said that Citizenship Amendment Bill was against the spirit of Indian Constitution and the people of North-East where in mood of resentment against Modi government on this issue.

The RJD leader said that in such situation when the neighbouring countries were not recognising the borders of the country, it is the primary responsibility of the government not to initiate steps triggering dissatisfaction among the citizens residing in the bordering areas. Terming Modi government as a big failure, Mr Tiwari said on one hand Modi government has triggered dissatisfaction and anger among the people of Jammu and Kashmir by abolishing article 370 while on the other it is again hell-bent to destabilize the North-East bordering areas of the country through the Citizenship Amendment Bill.

He said that actions of Modi government was raising fingers on his feelings of patriotism. He alleged that influenced with the hatred feelings towards a particular community, the BJP was not able to visualise the interest of the nation and where taking anti constitutional steps which may harm the Countrys’ Sovereignty.
