CAA Likely To Be Implemented From January: BJP’s Kailash Vijayvargiya

Kolkata: Senior BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya on Saturday said that the Citizenship (Amendment) Act is likely to be implemented from January next year as both the Centre and the saffron party are keen to grant citizenship to the large refugee population in West Bengal.

He accused the Trinamool Congress government of not being sympathetic to the cause of the refugees.

“We are hopeful that the process of granting citizenship to refugees under the CAA will begin from January next year,” he told media during the party’s “Aar Noy Anyay” (no more injustice) campaign in North 24 Parganas district.

“The Centre has passed the CAA with the honest intention of granting citizenship to persecuted refugees coming to our country from neighbouring nations,” he added.

Reacting to the BJP national general secretary’s comment, senior TMC leader and state minister Firhad Hakim said that the the saffron party is trying to fool the people of West Bengal.

“What does the BJP mean by citizenship? If the Matuas are not citizens, how come they voted in assembly and parliamentary polls year after year? The BJP should stop fooling the people of West Bengal,” he said.

The CAA seeks to grant citizenship to Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Christian, Jain and Parsi refugees who have come to India from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan on or before December 31, 2014.
