    President appoints Manoj Sinha as new Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir

    The President Ram Nath Kovind has appointed Manoj Sinha as the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday came down heavily on those protesting against the amended citizenship law, saying they refused to see the ill-treatment of religious minorities in Pakistan.

    “Those who are fearmongering on CAA refuse to see the persecution of religious minorities in Pakistan. Shouldn’t we help the persecuted? Some time back a Pakistan Army advert came out in which it was clearly written that only Non-Muslims apply for sanitation workers post,” PM Modi said addressing hundreds of National Cadet Corps (NCC) cadets at a rally.

    The NCC rally was held as part of Republic Day celebrations, at Cariappa Parade ground in New Delhi.

    The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which has sparked nationwide protests, grants citizenship to non-Muslim refugees belonging to six different faith including Hinduism and Sikhism and coming to India from Pakistan, Afghanistan or Bangladesh.

    The Act itself does not mention ‘religious persecution’ as a criterion for granting of citizenship, but BJP leaders and Union ministers have justified the picking of six religions saying they were persecuted religious minorities in those three countries.

    At the rally, PM Modi also tore into the previous Congress-led government saying problems in Jammu and Kashmir persisted since Independence because some political parties kept issues alive.

    Claiming that Jammu and Kashmir and other parts of the country were peaceful today, he said, “for decades, aspirations of the Northeast were neglected.”

    He also called the Bodo peace pact, signed on Monday, as “historical”.

    “Idea of young India is to advance by taking everyone along, developing everyone and gaining trust of all,” he said.
