In Bengal, CAA causes fissures amid BJP leaders 15.1.2020 Rediff: News
BJP leaders in the state are either lying low or criticising the CAA move in hushed tones. Chandra Kumar Bose, vice-president of the BJP's state unit, is most vocal with his opposition to the Act in the current form. "The country is above petty party politics.
