NEW DELHI: National General Secretary of BJP, Kailash Vijayvargiya was slammed by Twitter users for making objectionable remarks on Bangladeshis.
Vijayvargiya said that while he was adding a new room to his house, he noticed that some of the workers had “strange eating habits.” They were mostly eating “poha” which is why they were most likely Bangladeshishs, the BJP leader said during a pro-CAA seminar.
Vijayvargiya also claimed that Bangladeshis were keeping a watch on him and following him when he goes out
“Whenever I go out, six-armed security personnel follow me. What is happening in this country? Will outside people enter and spread so much terror?” he said, according to media reports.
CAA aims to protect religiously persecuted Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan by giving them Indian Citizenship. The cut-off date for those to be given citizenship in India has been fixed at, on or before 31st December 2014.
