Union home minister Amit Shah on Tuesday dared the opposition to continue their protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act as he emphasised the legislation will not be revoked.
The home minister also called Congres’s Rahul Gandhi, West Bengal chief Mamata Banerjee, Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav for a public debate on the citizenship act during a rally in Lucknow.
“The anti-CAA parties are spreading propaganda and spreading illusions that’s why the BJP is running the Jan Jagran Abhiyan, which is a public awareness campaign against those who break the country,” Amit Shah said.
The minister reiterated that there is no provision for taking the citizenship of anyone anywhere under CAA and rather people will be given India’s citizenship.
His rally comes even as the protest led by women against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) entered its fifth day.
Other than Shah’s rally, other BJP leaders are also scheduled to address people in UP.
Newly-elected BJP chief JP Nadda will be in Agra on Thursday to drum up support for the recent amendment in the act.
Defence minister Rajnath Singh and Union road transport minister Nitin Gadkari, both former BJP chiefs, will be also holding rallies in UP.
