'The nation will have the second partition'

'The nation will have the second partition'

As today marks the 123rd birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, his grandson and BJP's West Bengal unit Vice President Chandra Kumar Bose made a shocking statement that the nation is moving towards a "second Partition". "Today the nation is falling apart. I am not going into details. But there is no unity among communities in India," Bose quoted.

And, of course, he was talking about the ongoing protests against the contentious legislation. "So unless you put Netaji in front, the nation will disintegrate and there will be partition again. This is a very clear message I would like to give to the Prime Minister," Mr Bose added.

Yesterday, Bose received backlash for calling Mohammad Ali Jinnah as a secular leader. "Mhd. Jinnah was a secular leader. He never wanted to split the nation. He was forced by the Congress communal leaders".

Since the protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act at Shaheen Bagh in southeast Delhi is going on from December 15, the BJP on Thursday said Shaheen Bagh has become 'Shame Bagh'. This was said by the BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Vijay Goel.

Much earlier, even Shiromani Akali Dal of Indian state political party in Punjab has decided to stay off the Delhi polls, demanding inclusion of Muslims in the Citizenship Amendment Act.
