NaddaNEW DELHI : Amid protests against the amended Citizenship Act, BJP working president JP Nadda on Thursday asserted that the law will be implemented and the National Register of Citizens will also be brought in.
On a day when massive protests erupted in New Delhi and other cities of the country, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) working president, J.P. Nadda, met a group of refugees from Afghanistan and assured them that the amended Citizenship Law and the NRC will be implemented.
“India is marching ahead under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and will continue to do so. The Citizenship Amendment Act will be implemented, so will be the NRC in future,” he said.

Nadda made these remarks after meeting Sikh refugees from Afghanistan, who under the amended act will become Indian citizens, and also slammed the opposition for protesting against the new legislation. The refugees met Nadda at BJP headquarters in the national capital where protest marches against the new law were held. Several people, including activists, were detained by police.

Nadda said BJP’s rivals are protesting for vote bank politics while ignoring the plight of minorities of three neighbouring countries living in India. He said BJP’s rivals are protesting for vote bank politics while ignoring the plight of minorities of three neighbouring countries living in India.
“Those who are opposing the citizenship law should meet them. These people have been living in India for 28-30 years but can’t admit their children in schools or buy a house as they do not have citizenship. Our rivals cannot see anything beyond their vote bank politics,” Mr Nadda said. The Citizenship (Amendment) Act will be implemented, so will be the NRC in future,” he told reporters.

PM Modi has been taking decisions which are “humanist” and in the interest of the country, Mr Nadda said.Amit Shah has underscored the government’s commitment to bring in NRC, another contentious provision, which seeks to identify infiltrators and take action against them. Many political parties and civic groups have argued that the CAA and NRC are discriminatory against Muslims.
