Bhubaneswar: BJP MP Roopa Ganguly accused the opposition parties for misleading people on the Citizenship Amendment Act and said that the act should be regarded as the world’s most important human rights law.
“In no way, the CAA will have any adverse impact on Indian citizens. Opposition parties are spreading lies and misleading people for narrow political purpose,” she said.
Ganguly was in Odisha and met refugees from erstwhile East Pakistan settled in Malkangiri and neighbouring Nabarangpur districts. BJP had also organised a meeting in support of the CAA on Wednesday.
“Despite all hue and cry over the issue, the fact remains that the CAA symbolises humanism. It can be described as the most important human rights law in the world. It aims at giving citizenship to people who come here after being tortured and harassed,” the Rajya Sabha member from West Bengal said.
