The wheels of the centre's controversial citizenship law will start rolling once the COVID-19 vaccination is over, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on February 11. This comes as an assurance to a community of Hindu immigrants in West Bengal ahead of elections. Drive to implement the Citizenship Amendment Act or CAA will benefit the Matua community, Shah said, among other non-Muslim immigrants who came in from Bangladesh, Pakistan & Afghanistan before 2015. The Home Minister said its implementation will not affect the citizenship status of Indian minorities. He accused the opposition parties of misleading the minorities about the law widely criticised as discriminatory since it makes religion a criteria for Indian nationality for the first time. Shah said the Modi government had promised in 2018 that it will bring in a new citizenship law & kept it when the BJP returned to power in 2019. Watch the video to know more.
