CAA Implementation Has Begun, West Bengal Will Not Remain Untouched: BJP


Ahmedabad/Kolkata: Assembly elections are expected in Gujarat by the end of this year. In such a situation, before the Gujarat elections, the central government has played a big bet.

The Center on Monday decided to grant Indian citizenship under the Citizenship Act to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan and currently residing in two districts of Gujarat.

Now, Leader of Opposition in the West Bengal Assembly, Shubhendu Adhikari claimed on Tuesday that the process of implementing the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) has begun in the country and West Bengal will not remain untouched by it.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Adhikari's remarks came a day after Centre announced to grant Indian nationality to refugees of three countries living in two Gujarat districts.

Trinamool Congress opposes: Trinamool Congress spokesperson Kunal Ghosh said that the ruling party in West Bengal will never allow the CAA to be implemented in the state.

"The BJP will not be able to implement the CAA in the country. Shubhendu Adhikari is making tall claims in an attempt to polarize the society ahead of the 2023 panchayat elections," he alleged.
