BJP Demands Rollback of NSA invoked by Baghel Govt

RAIPUR: The Chhattisgarh Government’s recent notification over the National Security Act in the State has created a political stir. Opposition BJP on Sunday addressed a press conference questioning the Govt motives. It demanded that the NSA should be rolled back as the “move will push the state into an emergency-like situation” according to them.

After facing backlash over the NSA notification from BJP, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel retorted in strong words. The NSA otification is a routine in every state. Even during the BJP’s Raman Singh regime and the law is passed by the Centre and if the BJP is worried, they must cancel it, Mr. Baghel said.

“BJP leaders alleged they will be implicated under the NSA and I want to know who was booked under NSA,” Mr Baghel added.

Announcing to launch of ‘Jan Jagran Abhiyan’ (public awareness campaign) against the state government taking recourse to the NSA, the BJP national vice-president Raman Singh said, “We strongly disapprove such decision to invoke NSA in the state. BJP will strongly confront it to make the state government withdraw the black law”. The BJP will oppose any such move with its full capacity, the BJP president Sao said.

The stir emerges from the recent notice by the home department that granted district magistrates the right to exercise the powers under section 3 of the NSA 1980 from January 1 to March 31 to deal with any threats to communal harmony and any action detrimental to law and order situation in the state.
