“There is civil war like situation in every street, which is fatal for our country. We cannot imagine development in civil-war like situation. I opposed CAA, when I become aware of such situation. not only in my constituency maihar, but similar situation prevails in other places, said Tripathi.
” We should either run the country according to the constitution or the BJP should come up with one of its own and tear and throw away B.R.Ambedkar’s constitution which says all the people irrespective of religion will live together”, he added. ” The country can not be divided on the basis of religion, said Tripathi.
He also opposed NRC. ” When villagers struggle to get a ration card, how will they be able to prove their citizenship? BJP talk of unity and integrity but inflame passions”, said the BJP MLA.
