Trinamool Rajya Sabha member Sushmita Dev stated that Shah ought to stop instantly as harmless and unarmed individuals have been killed with none motive.
“I agree that the Armed Forces (Special Power) Act, 1958 was enforced during Congress rule. But considering the present situation, the Home Minister should talk to the Chief Ministers of the northeastern states as the ruling parties of these states are either BJP or their allies,” the Congress turned Trinamool chief informed IANS over cellphone from Kolkata.
“What happens in the country when the central armed forces are killing innocent people indiscriminately without any issue.
“The North East Democratic Alliance, the BJP led alliance underneath Amit Shah has been disastrous for the northeastern states. It is so unlucky to see the peace being dismantled for uncooked energy by the BJP,” Dev tweeted.
