Panaji: Goa Pradesh Congress Committee on Saturday filed complaint with the Election Commission against BJP National President Amit Shah for “grave intimidating threat against minorities especially Christians and Muslims in Goa.”
The complaint has been addressed to Chief Electoral Officer at Goa by GPCC Chief Spokesman Sunil Kawathankar.
Quoting Shah’s speech at Darjeeling (WB) on April 11, Kawathankar has said that the BJP National President has publicly threatened the minorities in India especially Christian and Muslims that they will be removed as infliltrators from India.
“He had said that BJP will remove every infiltrator except Hindus, Buddhist and Simhs,” Kawathankar has said.
“If BJP leader has said that he will remove infiltators that it was okay but giving it a religious colour has created communal discord and fear and anxiety in the mind of people of minority community,” the complaint reads.
Kawathankar has alleged that in violation of Article 25-28of the Constitution of India, Shah has said that “we have promises in our manifesto that once Narendra Modi forms government, we will implement National Register of Citizens in the entire country.”
“This is a direct threat to Christians, Muslims and those communities who have ot found mention in BJP leaders’ speech,” he said.
