Earlier this month, the BJP launched ‘Jan Jagran Abhiyan’ to create awareness amongst masses about the contentious act. As part of the campaign, the BJP decided to hold 250 press conferences, rallies and Sampark Abhiyan to make people aware of the positive side of CAA.

On Saturday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah lashed out at those who are opposing the act. Shah, while attending a pro-CAA rally in Karnataka’s Hubli, called political parties and people opposing the act “anti-dalits”. Senior ministers of the Karnataka government including Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa were also present at the rally. The Citizenship Amendment Bill was passed in Parliament in December last year, after which widespread protests erupted across the country.
