Kolkata: Leader of the Opposition in West Bengal, Suvendu Adhikari challenged the state's CM Mamata Banerjee and said that the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) will remain in force in the state, if you have the courage, stop it. Let us inform you that, BJP MLA Suvendu Adhikari reached Thakurnagar in North 24 Parganas district on Saturday (November 26) for a meeting. It is a Matua-dominated area, whose roots are linked to Bangladesh.
Here Suvendu Adhikari said, 'The CAA Act does not say that the citizenship of a resident with legal papers will be taken away.' Challenging the state CM and Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo Mamata Banerjee, he said, 'We have talked about CAA many times. CAA will be implemented in Bengal. If you have the guts, stop it from being implemented.' The official said that the central government does not believe in taking away anyone's rights. Those who talk like this only want to vitiate the atmosphere.
Suvendu Adhikari said that after winning the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Modi government at the Center had promised that it would remove Article 370 from Kashmir. The Modi government fulfilled this promise. Similarly, BJP will also fulfill its promise of implementing CAA.
