Govt will not be afraid by the CAA protests; Will not take back the act: Amit Shah

@AmitShah
Union Home Minister Amit Shah today said that government will not be afraid by the protests on Citizenship Amendment Act, CAA and Centre will not take back the act.

He was addressing a rally in Lucknow to dispel doubts over the CAA. The rally was a part of the Bharatiya Janata Party's countrywide campaign in support of CAA. Mr Shah accused the opposition parties of dividing the country and reiterated that CAA is a law that does not take away the citizenship of any individual, but gives citizenship to minorities from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
 
The Home Minister said that the opposition is protesting against the issues of National interest.He dared the opposition leaders including Akhilesh Yadav, Rahul Gandhi, Mayawati and Mamata Banerjee to an open debate on the Citizenship Amendment Act. He said that Grand Ram Temple will be made at Ayodhya within three months.

AIR Lucknow Correspondent reports that migrants in large numbers from different parts of Uttar Pradesh especially from districts of Tarai region had come to express solidarity with the government and to thank the Home Minister for giving them what they call a new lease of life. Families of some of them had migrated decades back.

BJP state unit has launched a massive outreach program on CAA and this is the third biggest rally after Varanasi and Gorakhpur.
 
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh will also hold a rally in Meerut city tomorrow, while the BJP's newly elected national President J.P. Nadda will take part in a similar event in Agra the following day.
