sanjiv-bhatt11_f_400x400New Delhi: After serving 27 years in Indian Police Service, IPS Officer Sanjiv Bhatt has now been finally removed from service today. He was suspended in 2011, during which time he was posted in Junagarh, where he reportedly remained absent from his duty and that too without permission. In addition, it was also stated that he misused the official vehicle.

If speculations are to be believed, the officer has been sacked only because he went against the then Chief Minister Narendra Modi at the time of 2002 riots. Sanjiv Bhatt had filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court blaming Modi for instructing the officers during the post-Godhra riots to allow Hindus to express their anger.

This can be a possible reason behind this sacking as only last month; CBI raided a human rights activist, Teesta Setalvad’s house. She has been trying to prove that how Modi is responsible for the killings of over 1000 people at the time of Gujarat riots.

There can be multiple reasons behind this move though. Only few days before sacking him, he was served with a notice owing to a video clip highlighting his alleged relationship with an unknown woman. Though he kept denying the charges and insisted that the person in the video clip isn’t him.

BJP President Amit Shah States The Importance of Having Citizenship Bill

Asking opposition parties not to create obstacles in the construction of Ram temple, he told them to clear their stand on the issue

BJP President Amit Shah on Sunday said that the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was “very necessary” and added that the government was working on building a consensus with stakeholders in the northeast.

Addressing the media here, Amit Shah also said that the government had brought the bill after much thought and Home Minister Rajnath Singh was holding consultations with various people to address the opposition to the issue.

“There are two sides of a coin. There are decisions that some like and some don’t… The fate of huge number of refugees can’t be kept hanging in the balance and we are firm on it,” he said.

Asked what would be the BJP’s stand if suggestions come to withdraw the Bill as it has created unrest in the entire northeast, Amit Shah said: “Home Minister is holding discussions with political parties. Discussion with some parties have already taken place. If consensus emerges, we will definitely move ahead but the Citizenship Bill is highly necessary for the country.”

The Bill seeks to grant Indian citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who entered India before December 31, 2014.
