Thakurnagar, Feb 11: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday reiterated that the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) will be implemented as soon as the nationwide Covid-19 vaccination drive ends.
“As soon as vaccination drive will conclude and we become Corona-free, the work of providing citizenship will be undertaken,” he said.
Addressing a rally here, which is a stronghold of Matua community, Mr Shah said, “CAA is Parliament’s law, how can you stop it? Also, you will not be in a position to stop it.”
Earlier, the Union Home Minister said the people of West Bengal have decided in favour of change of government in the state.
Addressing a public rally at Rasleela Maidan of Coochbehar city in North Bengal today, he said, if BJP comes to power in the state, they will make Bengal free from infiltrators.
Mr Shah also accused Trinamool Congress supremo and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of “depriving” the poor people of the state.
He alleged that Ms Banerjee had not implemented Central welfare schemes like PM Kisan Nidhi and Ayushman Bharat and promised to implement the same within a week, if BJP comes into power.
Mr Shah visited Madan Mohan temple in Coochbehar before flagging off the Parivartan Yatra.
