Ignorance of Those Neglecting Ground Realities in Teaching Lessons..,” Says Vice President on CAA

The Vice President, Shri Jagdeep Dhankhar Yesterday expressed his strong disapproval of the use of sovereign platforms for making ignorant observations about CAA. Emphasising that CAA is meant for giving reprieve to those persecuted on religious grounds in our neighbourhood, he highlighted that none is being deprived of citizenship and still the narrative is so different.

Referring to the cut off date of 2014 for citizenship under CAA, the Vice-President said that we are not inviting people to get benefit of it. “Benefit of this is being given to whom? Who are already in this country. They have been in this country for over a decade,” he stressed.

Addressing the 2nd edition of the American Bar Association Spring Conference as chief guest in Delhi today, Shri Dhankhar highlighted the long history of India giving refuge to many religious communities. The Vice-President said that those trying to teach lessons to us while being ignorant about ground realities must be rebuffed.

Underlining the structured democratic tradition in India right from parliament to panchayat level, the Vice-President objected to the remarks made by some from sovereign platforms about India’s institutions. “We are not a nation to get scriptures from others, Shri Dhankhar stated.

VP further said that “There are some countries, from several platforms they want to teach us what democracy is?” and asked the youth to speak against such things on social media and other platforms. He called upon the young minds to enlighten the countries, trying to teach us lessons out of their ignorance, to engage into diligence.

Tracing the economic journey of India from fragile five to big five, the Vice-President questioned those who had been in power but only spread pessimism. “ My heart pains, when someone who was in a position of power in this country, in the field of economics spread only pessimism”, he added.

Shri R. Venkataramani, Attorney General of India, Shri Tushar Mehta, Solicitor General of India, Dr. Lalit Bhasin, President, Society of Indian Law Firms (SILF), Ms. Pratibha Jain, Chair, India Committee, ABA and other dignitaries were also present on the occasion.
