Lucknow,10th Jan,2020:Salient points of my press conference at BJP office in Lucknow as part of BJP’s nationwide awareness campaign on Citizenship Bill

 Senior BJP leader and Union Minister Shri Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi today said here that “Horror Ruckus” on the Citizenship Bill by some political parties is flop and “evils of misinformation” have been exposed completely.

While addressing a press conference at BJP office in Lucknow as a part of the BJP’s nationwide “Jan Jagran” campaign (awareness campaign) on the Citizenship Amendment Bill, Shri Naqvi said that the Congress and its allies are involved in a conspiracy to “hijack” the peace and harmony through “misinformation” and disturb the fabric of unity and harmony in the society.

Shri Naqvi said that the ongoing “protests are influenced by political propaganda”. The Congress and its allies are involved in a conspiracy to disturb the fabric of communal harmony and unity of the country through “philosophy of Jhuthmev Jayate” will be defeated.

Shri Naqvi said that the Congress and its allies had started “horror ruckus” on the Citizenship Amendment Bill while the truth is that the Citizenship Bill is a Bill to provide citizenship and not to take away citizenship of any person.

Shri Naqvi said that after being rejected by the people in the democracy, the Congress and its allies are using the students and youths as their “shield” for their narrow political interests. The students and the youths should not get influenced by “evils of misinformation” and they must become a part of effort to strengthen communal harmony and unity of the country.

Shri Naqvi said that Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and Home Minister Shri Amit Shah, from every platform, have ensured the country that constitutional, religious, social rights of every Indian are absolutely safe. There is no threat or question mark to citizenship of any Indian due to the Citizenship Amendment Bill or any other legislation.

Shri Naqvi said that India is the safest place for Indian Muslim in the world where his social, religious, constitutional rights of Indian Muslims are absolutely safe and secure.

Shri Naqvi said that the Citizenship Amendment Bill is a Bill to provide citizenship to Minorities facing religious persecution in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. The Bill will provide citizenship only to a person if he or she wants it. “The Citizenship Bill is to provide citizenship and not to take away citizenship of any person”.

Shri Naqvi said that “fake fabricated propaganda”, carried out by the Congress and its allies on the issue of the Citizenship Amendment Bill has been exposed. “Barrier of Bogus Bashing Brigade” on the Citizenship Bill created by the Congress and its allies has been broken and the truth has prevailed.
