    This is communal, appeasing one community and anti constitutional. If so then Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Jains, Sikhs etc etc too have their own New years but are tolerant and considerate to other religions unlike BJP govt which is non tolerant and inconsiderate and wants only to create disharmony, disturb peace and law and order situation in the country.
