Home Minister Amit Shah today ruled out withdrawal of Citizenship Amendment Act amidst opposition by various political parties and groups. In an interview, Mr. Shah said there is no possibility of rolling the legislation back.
He reiterated that there will not be any injustice to any citizen of India. The Home Minister accused the Opposition parties, including Congress, of misleading students over the issue.
Earlier, addressing a function in New Delhi, the Home Minister asserted that those who are against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act may oppose it as much as possible, but Narendra Modi Government is committed to giving citizenship and dignified life to refugees mistreated for the last 70 years.
He also mentioned that giving citizenship to refugees was part of the Nehru Liaquat Pact which is being implemented after 70 years under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Once constructed, the Bharat Vandana Park would be a major tourist attraction.
The park will be developed over an area of 200 acres at a cost of 550 crore rupees.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that there was nothing against minorities in the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and accused the opposition of engaging in a false campaign over the legislation.
Mr Shah said, no action is being taken against students protesting against the CAA. However, the action is being taken only against those engaging in action of destruction and voilence during protests.
