Kolkata: West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh on Tuesday courted controversy by asking why nothing is happening to Shaheen Bagh protesters demonstrating under the open sky in Delhi's chilly winter, while people are "committing suicide" in his state due to panic over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the proposed countrywide National Register of Citizens (NRC).
Ghosh wondered why the protesters, who include women and children, are not falling ill or dying despite sitting on demonstration for weeks under the open sky. He also sought to know who is funding the protesters.
Hundreds of women have been protesting at the Shaheen Bagh in South Delhi against the CAA. The sit-in, which has been on for more than a month, has inspired others to hold similar demonstrations at Park Circus Maidan in Kolkata.
"We came to know that women and children are protesting against the CAA and are sitting under the open sky during this cold winter nights in Delhi. I wonder why none of them has fallen sick. Why does nothing happen to them? Why has not a single protester died there? This is quite absurd. Have they consumed some sort of nectar that nothing is happening to them? But in Bengal, several people claimed to have committed suicide due to panic," he said.
Ruling TMC supremo and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has claimed that over 30 people have committed suicide because of panic over the CAA and proposed nationwide NRC. He also questioned the source of funding at Shaheen Bagh and Park Circus Maidan protests.
Hundreds of Muslim women are demonstrating against the CAA and the proposed nationwide NRC at the Park Circus Maidan here for 22 days.
"I wonder where from the money is coming. The truth about this will surely come out in the days to come," he said.
Ghosh, the BJP MP from Midnapore seat, is known for courting controversies. A few days back he had said anti-CAA protesters who had destroyed public property were shot like dogs in BJP-ruled states.
Ghosh also took a dig at party general secretary and its Bengal minder Kailash Vijayvargiya for his 'poha' comment, saying he himself loves it and finds nothing wrong in having it in the diet.
"I myself eat poha and I don't see anything wrong in eating it. Everybody is entitled to his or her opinion," he said without naming Vijayvargiya.
Vijayvargiya last week said he had found the eating habits of some of the construction labourers working at his house in Indore "strange" as they were eating 'poha' (flattened rice). After talking to their supervisor and the building contractor, Vijayvargiya had said he suspected they were from Bangladesh.

nCore Games' FAU-G: Fearless and United Guards games based around the Indian armed forces has finally launched today after months of anticipation and hype. The game was launched on the same day as the country celebrates its 72nd Republic Day, in line with the game's theme that revolves around the Indian Armed Forces. In a disappointment to some users, FAU-G: Fearless and United Guards has only launched for Android smartphones for now. The game was first listed on the Google Play Store in November, when the pre-registrations for FAU-G had commenced. It is not known as to when FAU-G will be launched for Apple iPhone users.
The Apple India online store has been off to a great start and that has helped Apple increase its market share significantly in India. It turns out that the Apple iPhone 12, Apple iPhone 11 and the iPhone XR have been the most popular phones in India during the winter months, which means Apple has doubled its bite on the Indian smartphone market to 4%. Apple also clocked at 60% year on year growth in India while the festive quarter, which saw the Apple India online store go Live just ahead of the Dussehra and Diwali festivals, registered 100% year on year growth. This significant increase in market share, as well as the warm reception of the Apple India online store coincides with the increased India focus from Apple in 2020.
Highly anticipated Indian homegrown game FAU-G: Fearless and United Guards from nCore Games has released for Android users. The game comes on the day India celebrates its 72nd Republic Day, and the launch announcement was made by Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, who has been promoting the game since the past few months. FAU-G: Fearless and United Guards from nCore Games launch comes much after the game's pre-registrations went live in November 2020.
