'CAA clearly divisive': UK govt after House debate

Feb 29, 2020 09:15 IST

The peers in the Upper House of the UK Parliament held a debate over the impact of India's Citizenship (Amendment) Act. The House of Lords sought representations by the UK government to counterparts in India over arising concerns around minority rights. The debate in London on Tuesday evening called on the UK government to urge Prime Minister Narendra Modi to conduct a review of the CAA and its effects on Indian society. The UK government, in response, said it has been closely monitoring the situation as the act has "clearly been divisive in India" and there are some concerns over its full impact.
