CBI, ED no more "caged parrots" but "jewels of law": BJP leadertext_fields
Rampur/ UP: The Central Bureau of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate are no more "caged parrots" but have become "jewels of law", performing their duties well without any bias, senior BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi claimed on Friday.
Addressing media in Moradabad and Rampur, the former Union minister came down on opposition parties for accusing the government of misusing the central agencies to target them, PTI reports.
According to him, those raising such allegations are themselves guilty of committing "wrong deeds". They, the "champions of corruption", are in trouble at the moment, and that is why they are raising baseless and unsubstantiated allegations against the agencies, Naqvi claimed.
He defended the Uttar Pradesh government's move to survey madrassas and Waqf properties. He said that critics of the move are augmenting a "bogey of fear and fallacy" to emotionally exploit commoners.
He claimed, "Everyone's constitutional rights are absolutely safe and secure."
He also claimed, "Some organisations like PFI are involved in a criminal and communal conspiracy to harm the fabric of harmony in the country," adding, "We all have to work united to defeat such nefarious elements."
Later, he stated that those who misuse religion as their guard are the biggest enemy of "the community, the country, and the entire humanity," PTI quoted.
