    Amid protests against amended citizenship law engulfing Odisha, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday appealed for calm as he assured people that the ruling party, Biju Janata Dal (BJD), will not be supporting NRC in the state.

    Saying that the party won’t be supporting NRC, Naveen Patnaik clarified that BJD backed the amended citizenship law, noting that it applies only to foreigners.

    “The amended Citizenship Act has nothing to do with Indians. It deals only with foreigners. The BJD MPs both in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha have made it clear that we do not support the NRC,” Naveen Patnaik told reporters.

    The chief minister’s statement came a day after people protesting the Act took out a peaceful rally in the state capital and urged Naveen Patnaik to make the BJD government’s stance clear on the amended citizenship law and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).

    Protesters of different faiths held placards against amended Citizenship Act and NRC but did not raise slogans during a rally that started at Satyanagar Masjid and was ataacked to end near Naveen Niwas, the chief minister’s residence.
