BJP Demands Verification of Attacks on Bihari Migrant Workers in Tamil Nadu
The BJP in Bihar Assembly created a ruckus on Friday, demanding that a team of members of the House be sent to Tamil Nadu to verify reports of attacks on Bihari migrant workers.
Speaker Takes Serious Note of Unruly Behaviour
Speaker Awadh Bihari Chaudhary took a grim note of the unruly behavior of some of the BJP MLAs who had entered the well and placed chairs on the table of the reporting staff.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Assents to Action Against Errant Members
The Speaker asked Parliamentary Affairs Minister Vijay Kumar Chaudhary to advise the Chair on suitable action against the errant members to which the latter assented while lambasting the BJP for trying to derive political mileage.
Ruling Party Slams BJP
“They have an issue with our Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav having visited Tamil Nadu on a personal invitation from the chief minister of that state. Even if reports of violence against migrants were true, would it have entailed officials and dignitaries from both states snapping all ties”, the minister said.
Yadav Points Out Denial of Reports of Violence
Earlier, Yadav, who was present in the House, pointed out that the Tamil Nadu DGP had denied the reports of violence and slammed the BJP for raising a stink over unverified claims.
The Deputy Chief Minister, Tejashwi Yadav, refuted the claim that the videos depict clashes between locals and migrants from Tamil Nadu, stating that there was no such incident. He urged anyone with information to provide it to the government.
बीजेपी, बीजेपी समर्थित मीडिया और इनके नेताओं का तथ्य और सत्य से कोई नाता नहीं है। इनकी झूठ फिर पकड़ी गयी।— Tejashwi Yadav (@yadavtejashwi) March 2, 2023
भ्रम,झूठ,नफ़रत,हिंसा और अफवाह फैलाना ही भाजपाइयों का मुख्य धंधा और पूँजी है। किसी भी देशहितैषी व्यक्ति को समाज में द्वैष व भ्रम नहीं फैलाना चाहिए।pic.twitter.com/asmy0QFXoL
Yadav criticized the opposition, stating that their only aim is to spread rumours and engage in negative politics. He highlighted their hypocrisy, noting that they proclaim their love for the nation, yet promote animosity between Indian states. He asked if Tamil Nadu was not a part of India and accused them of sowing seeds of hatred between the two states.
