CM is challenging Cong govt’s decision: Kaushik

Saturday, 18 January 2020 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

Leader of Opposition Dharamlal Kaushik termed the petition filed against the NIA Act by the state government as illogical.

The BJP leader pointed out that the Act was brought by the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre.  “Now what has happened that after coming to power in the state, the Congress after coming to the power in the state is protesting against the Act introduced by its own party-led government.

Kaushik alleged that it could be a conspiracy to give monetary benefits to the Congressmen lawyers, who will be filing such petitions and fighting the case, which has no validity.

The question arises, Kaushik says, one after   another the state government has lost cases and recently in the House it has been accepted the in the name of paying legal fees, Congress leaders have been given crores of money. He termed the statement of the State Congress president Mohan Markam as unacceptable and unnecessary.

BJP leader said in the name of terrorism, Congress had always adopted double standard. At the Centre under Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the POTA Law was brought but Congress after coming to power had annulled the law. There was increase in terrorist cases. In the name of terrorism, no politics should be done. It is a result of such policy that Mumbai attack happened after which the necessity for the NIA was felt.

Leader of the Opposition claimed that Central government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is continuing to act on Naxalism and terrorism in the country, bringing down the incidents. The intention of the state government is not clear.
