PM Modi assures in Lok Sabha that CAA will not affect any Indian Citizen

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday replied to the Motion of Thanks on the President’s Address.

Dwelling on length at the Citizenship Amendment Act, the Prime Minister assured the House that no citizen of India would be affected by it.

Prime Minister Modi in his speech referred to the thought process of the previous Governments which were on the same lines.

Narendra Modi quoted the first Prime Minister of India Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru who favoured amending the law, if required, to ensure that minority refugees from neighbouring countries be granted protection by India.

The Prime Minister said that certain political parties are furthering Pakistan’s agenda of divisiveness in India and assured the Lok Sabha that the CAA is not going to affect any Indian Citizen.

“I want to clarify that there will be no impact on any citizen of India, whatever be their faith/religion, owing to the implementation of the CAA”, he said.
