CAA will not be withdrawn, confirms Amit Shah

Jan 21, 2020 16:36 IST

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday said that newly amended citizenship law will not be scrapped despite protests over it. He attempted to allay fears saying that there is no provision in the amended law for taking anyone's citizenship away and that "a canard" is being spread against the CAA by the Congress, SP, BSP, and Trinamool Congress. He also challenged Congress opposition leaders to hold a discussion with him on the CAA at a public forum. Addressing a rally in Lucknow Shah also declared that construction of a Ram temple "touching the skies" in Ayodhya will begin within three months.
