Udaipur: Rajasthan Assembly Speaker has backed the Citizenship Amendment Act where he said that citizenship is a subject of the Centre and not of the State.
” Under the Constitution, citizenship is a subject of the Centre and not of the State,” said Joshi.
He was speaking at an event in Udaipur.
” State governments can make laws only on the subjects of the concurrent list like the Centre made the law under the Motor Vehicle Act. The region of the state will not implement it, but the law is that if the central government has made a law in the corporate subject, no state can make a law against it,” he added.
His statements has contradicted Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot’s where the latter has again and again declared that CAA and NRC will not be implemented in the State.
