PATNA: Reacting over Union Home minister Amit Shah’s remark on the enforcement of Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) after Covid-19 pandemic subsides, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar on Friday said that it would be the Centre’s decision, and the Bihar government is more concerned about safeguarding its people from Covid-19.
“It will be the decision of the Centre. The biggest issue is that the cases of Covid-19 are again rising. We are more concerned about safeguarding our people from Covid-19. If (CAA) is a policy matter we will look at separately,” Nitish said on being asked for his reaction over Amit Shah’s remark about the CAA in New Jalpaiguri (West Bengal) on Thursday.
Shah, who is on a two-day visit to West Bengal, had on Thursday said that the CAA would be enforced as soon as the pandemic gets over. He had also accused the ruling Trinamool Congress in the state of spreading rumours about non-enforcement of the Union government’s law.
“TMC is spreading rumours about the CAA that it won’t be implemented on the ground, but I would like to say that we’ll implement the CAA on the ground the moment the Covid-19 wave gets over. ends…Mamata Didi wants infiltration to continue… People of TMC should hear with open ears that CAA was, is, and will be a reality,” Shah had said at a rally in Jalpaiguri on Thursday.
The CAA Bill was passed by Parliament in 2019, triggering violent protests across the country especially by the members of Muslim communities. The Bill which amended the Citizenship Act, 1955, makes Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Buddhist, Christian, and Parsi migrants who entered India from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh eligible for Indian citizenship. But it debars Muslims coming to India from the above countries from obtaining Indian citizenship.
