Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan on Thursday said that the resolution passed by the state assembly to withdraw the new Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) has no constitutional or legal validity.
“The resolution has no constitutional or legal validity,” he said while talking to media persons in Thiruvananthapuram, adding that the state had no role as “citizenship comes under the domain of the central government”.
“Citizenship comes exclusively in the domain of the central government. The state government has no role. So, why are these people engaged in something which is a non-issue for Kerala?,” he was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
On Tuesday, the Kerala State Assembly passed the resolution against CAA.
