Slamming the opposition parties for objecting to the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, he said, “I want to ask Lalu and Mamata didi what wrong have the Matuas and the Namasudras done to them that they are opposing the grant of citizenship to these people.” Also Read - Delhi Assembly Election 2020: AAP Releases List of Candidates For All 70 Constituencies, CM Kejriwal to Contest From New Delhi Seat
“Opposition parties engineered anti-CAA riots, a reason why BJP took upon itself to hold rallies across the country to apprise people about their nefarious designs,” Shah said. CAA intends to help those who came to India after their womenfolk were raped in front of their eyes, their properties snatched away and their places of worship desecrated, Amit Shah said.
Talking about Bihar elections and BJP-JD(U) alliance, the Union home minister said, “I want to end all rumours by declaring here in the open, the next assembly elections in Bihar will be fought under the leadership of Nitish Kumar.”
