Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Thursday that the process of granting Indian citizenship to refugees under the CAA, including the Matua community in West Bengal, would begin after the completion of Kovid-19 vaccination. Accusing the amended citizenship law of misleading the minority community, he said that the citizenship of Indian minorities would not be affected by its implementation.
The Home Minister said that the Modi government had promised in 2018 that it would bring a new citizenship law and that promise would be fulfilled when the BJP comes to power in 2019. He said that it could not be implemented in 2020 due to the Kovid-19 epidemic. Amit Shah said that Mamta didi said that we made wrong promises.
He started opposing the CAA and said he would not allow it to be implemented. BJP always fulfills its promise. We have brought this law and the refugees will get citizenship. Addressing a rally in the Matua community stronghold, Amit Shah said that the process of granting citizenship under the CAA will begin when the Kovid-19 vaccination process ends. Matu are weak Hindus originally from East Pakistan. Who came to India after the partition and creation of Bangladesh. Some of them have got Indian citizenship, but a large population has not yet got it.
