Time to unite: Kerala CM writes to 11 non-BJP CMs on CAA-NRC

Jan 03, 2020 21:05 IST

Days after a Kerala Assembly resolution demanded that the Citizenship Amendment Act be scrapped, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Friday wrote to 11 non-BJP chief ministers asking them to take similar steps against the controversial law. Pitching for unity to protect democracy and secularism, Vijayan wrote to chief ministers of Andhra Pradesh, Delhi, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Punjab, Puducherry, Rajasthan, West Bengal and also Bihar's Nitish Kumar, an ally of the BJP. The Kerala assembly on Tuesday passed the resolution, supported by ruling CPIM-led LDF and opposition Congress headed UDF, demanding the repeal of the Citizenship Amendment Act.
