Lucknow: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday addressed a public meeting in favor of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in Uttar Pradesh capital Lucknow. Amit Shah has attacked the opposition against the protests against CAA in many parts of the country. He said that opposition against CAA is spreading confusion and work is being done to break the nation. On this issue, our party has decided to undertake Jan Jagran Abhiyan.
Addressing the rally, Amit Shah said that by opposing parties on CAA and propagating confusion, BJP is running Jan Jagran Abhiyan, which is a campaign of mass awakening against those who break the country. Narendra Modi has brought the CAA. Congress, Mamta Banerjee, Akhilesh, Mayawati, Kejriwal are all spreading illusions against this bill. He said that I have introduced this bill in the Lok Sabha. I want to tell the opposition that you should discuss this bill publicly. If it can take citizenship of any person, then prove it and show it.
Amit Shah further said that confusion is being spread against the CAA in the country, riots are being organized. There is no provision for taking citizenship of anyone anywhere in the CAA, it has a provision of granting citizenship. Taking a dig at the Congress, he said that because of the sin of the Congress, India was divided into two on the basis of religion. The number of minorities in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh continued to decrease. Where did these people go? Some were killed, some were forcibly converted.
