NSUI files 'missing person' report against Home Minister Amit Shah
The National Students Union of India (NSUI) has filed a 'missing person' report against Union Home Minister Amit Shah with the Delhi Police over the 'disappearance' of the country's Home Minister at the time of a grave health crisis brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.
NSUI general secretary Nagesh Kariyappa filed the complaint against Shah with the Parliament Street police station.
Kariyappa said that the politicians are supposed to serve the nation and not run away during a crisis.
He further stated that when the country is suffering from a deadly pandemic, its politicians must be accountable not only to the government of India or the BJP but also to the people of the country.
NSUI National Secretary and media and communication in charge, Lokesh Chugh, said that until 2013, the politicians were responsible towards the citizens. However, with the occurrence of BJP in power, things have changed and the 'second person in command' in the Central government is 'missing' amid the pandemic.
Chugh alleged that when people need the government to take care of them, its office bearers are nowhere to be seen.
Meanwhile, Kariyappa also said that the entire country is suffering from a deadly pandemic, and the government should support its citizens and be answerable for its deeds.
The current government has failed to do so. Therefore, the NSUI has filed a missing person complaint against the Home Minister and is waiting for the government to answer to its people, Kariyappa added.
