BJP’s programme a flop show: Congress

State Congress on Wednesday charged that the BJP rally led by Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya in support of Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) was a flop show.

The Congress’s state general secretary and chairman communication wing Shailesh Nitin Trivedi said actually the BJP leaders and cadres of the state too had discarded the black law, the CAA, along with state’s populace. He also charged that there were differences of opinion about CAA among the BJP leaders.

“That was why even State BJP President Vikram Usendi and Leader of Opposition Dharamlal Kaushik were absent from the programme related to citizenship act”, he said.

Trivedi further charged that the BJP failed to answer any of the five questions being asked by the PCC Chief Mohan Markam. The speakers in the programme also avoided to comment on the question raised by the Congress, he added.
