Oppose communal violence bill: Modi to CMs

New Delhi, Dec 6 : Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Friday said he has written to Chief Ministers of certain states urging them to oppose the Prevention of Communal Violence (Access to Justice and Reparations) Bill, 2013.


According to reports, the Centre is planning to introduce the bill in the ongoing Winter Session of the Parliament.

"Wrote to fellow Chief Ministers of various states, requesting them to oppose Communal Violence Bill,"Modi tweeted.

"Requested State Govts to rise above political affiliations & together oppose the Bill, which intrudes upon powers of elected State Govts," the Gujarat Chief Minister said.

Modi website said: "The Chief Ministers Shri Modi wrote to include Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan (Madhya Pradesh), Shri Prithviraj Chavan (Maharashtra), Shri Okram Ibobi Singh (Manipur), Dr. Mukul Sangma (Meghalaya) among others."

"Earlier Shri Narendra Modi had written to the Honourable Prime Minister of India expressing his strong opposition to the Bill. In a comprehensive letter to the Prime Minister, he listed the grounds on which he opposed the Bill and even pointed out the various sections of the Bill that were flawed. He had described the Bill as ill conceived, a recipe for disaster and added that it was driven by votebank politics not genuine concern for society at large," read the website.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has also written to Singh opposing the bill, reports said.
