Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Friday claimed that there is a rift between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his long time close associate and Union Home Minister Amit Shah over implementation of National Population Register (NPR) and National Register of Citizens (NRC).
Baghel said this at the function held at local Sardar Balbeer Singh Juneja Indoor Stadium to felicitate elected members of local urban bodies.
“On one hand Shah says that ‘chronology’ must be understood and they are going ahead for NPR and NRC, Modi in his speech speaks something different”, Baghel said.
Baghel further added “actually the BJP regime could be divided in two phases. First one was the five year tenure prior to 2019 general elections and second one is its present term”. “Modi dominated in the first phase while it seems that Union Home Minister Shah has taken over in the second phase”, he added.
He further also lamented the Modi-led union government failed in economic front and in generating employment for educated youth. The trivial issues of CAA, NPR and NRC are hence raked up to divert the attention, he charged.
