Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party is committed to the implementation of the amended Citizenship Act and its rules are set to be made in the coming times. Speaking at an event, he said that it is a legitimate right of a Hindu to become a citizen of his motherland and BJP is completely in favor of CAA.
CAA rules will be applicable in the coming time
Why are the rules of CAA not framed yet? On this question, Sharma said that there were some people who were protesting against the CAA and after this the corona virus epidemic came. Sharma said, “The process is on, but the BJP is still committed to it. Parliament has passed the bill and you will see the rules of CAA in the times to come. The Chief Minister rejected the argument that the BJP was using it as an election gimmick.
CAA joins our commitment
“CAA is part of our commitment, it is part of our ideology. We will implement it. Some people used to question where is the Ram temple, when will it be built, but now you will see the Ram temple. Some people used to question that when Article 370 will be removed, it has been removed. Similarly, you will see Uniform Civil Code and CAA being implemented.” Under the CAA, there is a provision to give Indian citizenship to non-Muslims (Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians) coming from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Many Congress workers will soon join BJP
The CAA was passed in the Parliament on December 11, 2019. Sharma criticized his former party Congress for making Mallikarjun Kharge the party president. Sharma said that if Shashi Tharoor had won the elections, he would have said that democracy has returned to the Congress. Sharma said that he thinks 1000 people of Congress who voted in favor of Shashi Tharoor will join BJP in six months or a year. He said that by the year 2029, BJP will be present everywhere in the country.
