Panaji: Bharatiya Janata Party working president J P Nadda appealed Dalit leaders who are opposing CAA to get their thinking right.
Nadda was addressing a crowd of more than 20,000 people in Panaji which had gathered in support of CAA.
“Dalit neta jo aaj CAA ka Virodh kar rahe hai, unko kehna hai ki apni mati Sudharo,” he said in his half an hour long speech.
You have to understand that 70-80 percent people who have come from neighbour countries to India (due to religious persecution) are from Dalit communities, Nadda said.
“They are oppressed people who have suffered. We have to bring them into mainstream,” he said adding that the process to bring to mainstream all those people who had arrived here before December 31,2014 has begun through this act.
In his speech, Nadda also challenged congress leader Rahul Gandhi to speak ten lines on CAA of which at least two lines should be on why is he opposing the act.
He said that this act was not to take but to give citizenship.
Union minister of State for defence Shripad Naik, chief minister Pramod Sawant, BJP Goa unit President Vinay Tendulkar also participated in the rally along with state cabinet ministers.
Naik said that the congress party was trying to create confusion in the minds of the people as they have been losing ground in the country.
He said that congress party itself had supported this act in the past but now when they are in the opposition, they are finding it as anti minorities.
“This act is not against any minority. Everyone who is opposing this act knows that it is not anti minorities but they pretend to be ignorant about it,” he said.
Sawant said that the some of the elements are trying to create fear in the minds of minorities citing the CAA.
He said that the Portuguese passport holders will not be impacted with the CAA. “Those who are creating fear in the mind of minorities should stop it,” he said adding that all the communities are living peacefully in the state and it would continue to do so.
The rally began at Patto on the outskirts of Panaji city and travelled to Azad Maidan where it culminated into a public meeting.
