Nagaland Civilian Killings…
Congress has slammed the central government over the Nagaland firing. Senior party leader and Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge said, the incident was a result of the Centre’s mistake.
Speaking to reporters, Kharge said, “We wanted to ask the central government about compensation to the bereaved families, but we were not given a chance in the House’.
The senior Congress leader further asked, ”What was your intelligence department doing? What were your informers doing? He (Union Home Minister) should know all these things’. He said, we are about to ask these questions, but after his statement, house was adjourned.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah has said in the Parliament, the centre regretted the deaths of 14 civilians in Nagaland. He read out statements in both Houses as opposition MPs shouted objections and demanded repeal of AFSPA.
The opposition have been demanding that, the government should accept it as a mistake. Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday termed the civilian killing by security forces a ‘case of mistaken identity’. Also he told the house that, a Special Investigation Team (SIT) has been constituted in this unfortunate incident and has been directed to submit the report within a month.
