Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma: Shraddha murder result of Congress’s appeasement politics

GANDHINAGAR: BJP leader and Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said on Monday that the murder of Shraddha Walkar involving her live-in partner Aaftab Poonawala is a fallout of the Congress’ appeasement politics and called for a law to tackle incidences of “love jihad”. Speaking to reporters at the state BJP headquarters, Sarma alleged “love jihad” incidents became normal in India because of an “eco-system created by Congress”. “Because of the appeasement politics of Congress, a particular class of people started thinking that authorities will not touch them no matter what they do. That is why we are now seeing such cases. Love jihad incidents became normal in India because of an ecosystem created by Congress,” Sarma said while referring to the Walkar murder case. “People like Aaftab are still under the impression that they can do whatever they want and nothing will happen to them. I believe the country needs a strong law to deal with ‘love jihad’ and it can be done only under the leadership of PM Narendra Modi,” he added. He said that terrorism couldn’t be contained under Congress’ rule because of its “appeasement politics”. “After 2014, you must have observed, the word terrorism has become almost obsolete. Terrorism could not be contained during the Congress rule because of appeasement politics,” he claimed. Sarma also stressed the need for the implementation of a Uniform Civil Code in the country and claimed B R Ambedkar was in favour of the UCC but Jawaharlal Nehru (the first PM of independent India) stalled his plans.

Amid calls for protest against the alleged injustice meted out to students from Karnataka at the National Law School of India University (NLSIU) in Bengaluru, the varsity on Wednesday released the provisional list of candidates for admission in its undergraduate programme in the wake of the Common Law Admission Test or CLAT 2023.The provisional list shows that out of the total 240 seats, as many as 60 (25%) have been offered to Karnataka students. According to the NLSIU Inclusion and Expansion Plan 2021-2025, the university voluntarily adopted a 25% horizontal compartmentalised reservation for Karnataka students from the 2021-22 academic year. As a result, NLSIU ensures that students from the state are admitted to 25% of seats in every vertical category, including general/SC/ST/OBC/EWS and, as a result, constitute at least 25% of the overall student body. In this case, Karnataka students are those who have studied in any recognised institution in the state for not less than 10 years.Earlier, Karnataka Law Minister J C Madhuswamy wrote to the vice-chancellor of NLSIU complaining that the “university has compartmentalised the reservation and provided a quantity of 25% including those who have been selected under the All India Rank”. He highlighted that “NLSIU is grouping even meritorious students who are supposed to be under general category along with domicile reserved students”.However, as per the provisional list, 19 students of Karnataka domicile have been selected for the undergraduate programme under the general category. This includes students with ranks 12, 23, 27 and 32.In fact, on Saturday, a group of pro-Kannada activists and lawyers’ association is set to stage a protest at NLSIU opposing the alleged “exclusion of Karnataka students” under their reservation policy. Karnataka Higher Education Minister C N Ashwath Narayan had also written to the university alleging that the institution was not complying with domicile reservation under section 4 of the NLSIU Amendment Act.In 2020, Karnataka High Court, in its decision dated September 29, 2020, struck down the validity of the National Law School (Amendment) Act, 2020 passed by the state government in April 2020. The court had stated that the state legislature has no power or authority under the Act to direct the respondent/Law School to provide reservations for students in view of the limited role of the state under the Act. Currently, the validation of the Amendment Act is sub judice in the Supreme Court of India.
