Will Not Allow Amit Shah Out Of Airport When He Visits Kolkata: Bengal Minister

Kolkata: West Bengal Minister and state president of Jamiat-Ulema-e-Hind Siddiqullah Chowdhury on Sunday said Home Minister Amit Shah will not be allowed out of the airport whenever he visits the city, if the
Citizenship Amendment Act is not immediately withdrawn.
Mr Chowdhury said the contentious law is against humanity.

"We may not allow him (Shah) to step out of the city airport if necessary. We may gather one lakh people there to stop him," he said at a Jamiat-Ulema-e-Hind rally against the CAA.

Reacting to his remarks, BJP's West Bengal unit chief Dilip Ghosh told PTI that Mr Chowdhury has made such "provocative comments" in the past, too, with the "tacit support of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee."
"How can a state minister issue such a threat? If they (Shah, PM Narendra Modi) are stopped from moving around in the city, then imagine the situation of others who don't share its (Trinamool Congress) views? Stop playing with fire," Mr Ghosh said.
The state's library service minister claimed that Jamiat-Ulema-e-Hind''s movement would be democratic and peaceful.
