Recently, Bose's great-grandnephew and the Vice President of the BJP in West Bengal, Chandra Bose spoke out against the government and opposition, and on the controversy regarding the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). "An atmosphere of fear is being created on the issue of citizenship. This applies to both the ruling party and the opposition parties. Just because it (the law) has been passed by Parliament, it can't be used to bulldoze people by ignoring the protests. The same applies to opposition parties which are deliberately misleading the masses."
