No reason to feel defensive about CAA: PM Modi tells NDA leaders

Jan 31, 2020 21:26 IST

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday asserted that his government has no reason to feel defensive about the Citizenship Amendment Act and asked NDA leaders to back the measure strongly in Parliament. A BJP ally told news agency PTI after a meeting to strategise for Parliament's Budget Session, the PM told them to aggressively take on the opposition's charge that the amended citizenship law discriminated against Muslims and said that minorities are as much "ours as other citizens are". The ally leader quoted him as saying that the government has done nothing wrong as far as the amended Citizenship Act is concerned and has no reason to feel defensive.
