Indore BJP councillor resigns in protest against CAA, says BJP going against its own ideology

After resigning from all posts he was holding in the BJP, Usman Patel said he had to resign as with the passage of CAA in Parliament, the BJP is going against its own ideology — Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam,

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) councillor Usman Patel on Saturday resigned from the party to protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA).

After resigning from all posts he was holding in the BJP, Usman Patel told ANI: “The BJP has moved away from the real issues. It’s doing only communal politics. GDP is going down. Inflation is rising but the party is bringing laws that create a rift between people of all religions.”

“For about 40 years, I worked for the BJP with full dedication. However, I had to resign as with the passage of CAA in Parliament, the BJP is going against its own ideology — Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam,” Usman Patel said.

Though PM Modi has time and again said that the CAA does not take away anyone’s citizenship, but only gives citizenship, Usman Patel asked: “What was the need to leave out Muslims. CAA, NPR, and NRC are linked to each other.”

Usman Patel has sent his resignation via WhatsApp to Gopi Krishna Nema, president of BJP’s Indore city.
