New Delhi:

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati suspended Madhya Pradesh’s Patheria MLA Ramabai Parihar from the party on Sunday for supporting the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). Also, Ramabai has been banned from participating in any party program. It is to be noted that the CAA paves the way to grant citizenship to the minorities that fled from three Muslim-dominated countries (Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh) due to religious persecution.

Mayawati informed about the suspension of Ramabai Parihar on Twitter. She tweeted in Hindi which says, “BSP MLA Ramabai Parihar from Patharia, Madhya Pradesh has been suspended from the party for supporting #CitizenshipAmendmentAct. Also, she has been banned from participating in any party program,” Mayawati tweeted in Hindi.

"BSP has strongly opposed the Act, calling it 'divisive and unconstitutional'. The party also voted against it in the Parliament and also gave a memorandum to the President about its withdrawal. Instead, MLA Ramabai Parihar went ahead and supported CAA. In the past too, she had been warned several times for her actions," the BSP supremo added.

Take a look:

Recently, while dealing with violent protests in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut on over the CAA, a top police officer was filmed advising a group of Muslims to go to Pakistan. The video has gone viral on social media that led to a massive controversy.

In a 0.40 minutes video, Akhilesh Narayan Singh, who serves as Superintendent of Police(City) of Meerut, can be seen walking in the city’s narrow lane wearing riot gear. Some other policemen, also in riot gear, are seen walking with him. Eventually, Akhilesh Narayan Singh stops after spotting few Muslim men and said, "Where will you go? I will set this lane right now that you have given me this chance.” After getting a reply from a man saying that they were just offering their Namaz, the SP said, "That's fine. But these black and blue badges you people are wearing, tell them to go to Pakistan.”

Akhilesh Narayan Singh further said, “If you do not want to live here then go away. You come here but you sing praises about somewhere else?” "I will throw every man from every house in jail. I will destroy everyone,” he concluded.
