Kolkata: Union Minister Smriti Irani on Friday appealed to the people to not be a tool of anybody else’s political strategies and that the Citizenship Amendment Act will not take away the rights of any Indian citizen.
“Citizenship Amendment Act does not take away the rights of any citizen of India. People who are providing support to violent elements, I appeal to the state governments to take stern action against them,” Irani said.
Irani also lashed out Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee for seeking referendum on the CAA 2019.
“Every citizen and political party in the country knows that Indian Constitution and Parliament are Supreme. Chief Minister’s doubt over this rule after it has been passed by the Parliament is nothing but an insult of the Parliament,” Irani said.
Smriti Irani further assured that the BJP-led NDA government will not take any decision against the common interest of the general public.
