Madhya Pradesh: What CM Mohan Yadav said while handing over certificate of Indian citizenship under CAA to Sameer, Sanjana and Rakhi Das

Bhopal:  Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Dr Mohan Yadav today welcomed the first three applicants of Madhya Pradesh state under the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) by handing them Indian citizenship certificates at the ministry.

The father of the first applicants under CAA, Sameer Selvani and Sanjana Selvani, was earlier living in Pakistan. They have been living in India since 2012. They applied under CAA in May. The third applicant Rakhi Das is from Bangladesh. She was also given a certificate of Indian citizenship today.

Chief Minister Dr Yadav said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, by resolving the difficulties related to citizenship, tried to restore a relationship that reminds of Akhand Bharat.

He said that before 1947, the then government had decided that we will protect and take care of all the minorities in our country. With this assurance, Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Christians, Parsis had remained in Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan, which were earlier part of India. 

CM said that with the passage of time, they were denied entry to India. They were banned and considered foreigners. Although they were not foreigners by origin. They were part of that undivided India. They stayed there only because of the trust of the then government. The governments of Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan were not able to provide them security.

Dr. Yadav said that due to CAA, people of our family are coming to us. They are coming to their native country to save their religion. If they had changed their religion there, they could have stayed there. Dr. Yadav said that the Prime Minister has done a great job. Whoever comes to Madhya Pradesh will be welcomed. The Madhya Pradesh government will provide full help in whatever needs they have.
