Police complaints lodged against Dilip Ghosh for threatening CAA protesters

Dilip Ghosh

Kolkata, Jan 15 After two police complaints were lodged on Tuesday against BJP West Bengal unit president Dilip Ghosh for his threat to “beat up” and “shoot’ ” anti-CAA protesters, the leader remained unmoved, as he alleged that the state has emerged as “hub of anti-nationals” during the Trinamool Congress rule.

The first complaint was registered in Ranaghat police station of Nadia district by a Trinamool Congress worker Krishnendu Banerjee, who alleged that Ghosh was inciting communal passion.

The second complaint was filed at Habra police station of 24 Parganas North district by another Trinamool worker.

State food and supplies minister and party’s district president Jyotipriyo Mullick said the complaint was being “treated as an FIR”.

“Lot of people are apprehensive that Dilip Ghosh could kill or shoot them. So the the complaint was filed,” Mullick said.

Meanwhile, speaking at a programme in Kharagpur of Midnapore West district, Ghosh said there has been collapse of law and order in most districts.

Ghosh won the Lok Sabha election from Midnapore seat.

“Under Trinamool rule, Bengal has become a hub of anti-nationals. It is a safe haven for terrorists and enemies of the state,” he alleged.

He said the situation has deteriorated with the Trinamool extending patronage to such people.

Addressing a party rally on Sunday in Ranaghat, about 80 km from Kolkata, Ghosh went ballistic saying the governments in BJP-ruled Assam, Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh have shot dead “like dogs” those protesting against the new Citizenship (Amendment) Act.

Alleging there were one crore infiltrators in the state, Ghosh accused them of destroying public property worth Rs 500-600 crore during the violent protests against the CAA last month.

“This (violence) happened because there was neither any baton charge, nor firing, nor was any FIR filed. Why? Didi’s (elder sister – as Mamata Banerjee is popularly called) police did not arrest anybody… because they vote for her.”

He then referred to the three states ruled by the BJP.

“In Assam, Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh, our governments have shot dead these devils like dogs. They were taken elsewhere and then again cases were filed against them. They will come here, eat, stay, and then destroy property, do they think this is their zamindari?”

He said once a BJP government was installed in Bengal: “We will hit them with sticks, shoot them, and also send them to jail. Our governments have done exactly that. Mamata Banerjee doesn’t have the guts to do anything.”

New Delhi, Feb 24 : Congress on Monday criticised US President Donald Trump for not mentioning Mahatma Gandhi in the visitor book of Sabarmati Ashram and instead praising Modi and called him “great friend” (PM Modi) and called his tour a “wonderful visit”

“This is a snapshot of the note that someone sent. It ostensibly is @realDonaldTrumps note at Sabarmati. No mention of the Great Mahatma. Does he even know who Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was?” Manish Tewari wrote while tweeting the pictures of the visitor book.

Tewari also shared the picturess of Barack Obama who praised Gandhi during his visit. “And this is what @barackobama had to say about the Great Mahatma possibly at Rajghat or Sabarmati.

“The distinction cannot be more stark…The visiting US president Barack Obama wrote about Gandhi in 2010 that ‘a hero just not to… India but for the whole world’.”

“Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth. Messrs Modi and Trump doing their best to prove Einstein right in a way he didn’t intend — by erasing the Mahatma from his abode!” tweeted Tharoor

Supreme Court judge Justice Deepak Gupta

New Delhi, Feb 24 : Supreme Court judge Deepak Gupta on Monday said if attempts are made to quell dissent, then it will have a chilling effect on democracy, as “governments are not always right” and that opposing government can’t be labelled as anti-national.

Speaking at the lecture hosted by Supreme Court Bar Association on democracy and dissent, Justice Gupta emphasized the essence of democracy by stating that majoritarianism is antithesis to democracy. “There have been many recent incidents where people have been called anti-national because they dissented from the government,” he said.

“If some party gets 51% votes, does that mean the other 49% should not speak for 5 years…every citizen has a role to play in democracy….governments are not always right,” said Justice Gupta.

“Just because you take a contararian view, it does not mean disrespect to the country. Whenever there is a clash of ideas, there will be dissent. Right to question is an inherent part of democracy.”

He reiterated that the Opposition has the right to protest as long as peaceful means are adopted. Justice Gupta also cited excerpts from a lecture recently given by Justice D.Y. Chandrachud, which said: “Blatant labelling if dissent as anti-national stops deliberative democracy.”

Citing vital components of democracy, Justice Gupta said democracy is considered successful, if it protects the civil rights of the citizens. “Dissent has an important role, it should be encouraged…it leads to finding better ways to run the country”, he added.
