Opposition misleading students over CAB: Amit Shah

Amit Shah Asks Protesting Students To Read The Bill First

Union Home Minister Amit Shah has accused the Opposition Congress, TMC and Aam Aadmi Party of misleading the students over the Citizenship Act, 2019 and spreading violence in the country.

Addressing couple of election rallies in Jharkhand, Shah also urged these parties to leave behind the path of violence as it can lead to no good. “I also urge the students to first read the Citizenship Amendment Bill as in this act there is no provision of taking away the citizenship of any person but it was rather to give citizenship to the people who had to face atrocities in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh,” he said.

Shah said that CAB was passed by both houses of the parliament to give citizenship to the minorities of these three neighbouring countries comprising the Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, Buddhists, Parsis and Christians but the opposition was doing its vote bank politics over the issue.
