Kolkata: The Citizenship Amendment Act will be implemented in West Bengal soon, BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya Saturday said.
The BJP Bengal minder Vijayvargiya, who was talking to reporters at Thakurnagar in North 24 Parganas district, did not say anything on the contentious National Register of Citizens.
“Even if the West Bengal government opposes the implementation of CAA we (Centre) will go ahead in implementing it. If the state supports the implementation it will be fine,” he said.
BJP national president JP Nadda during his recent visit to the state had said that rules for implementation of the Act are being framed. CAA will be implemented in letter and spirit after it.
To a categorical question about the implementation of NRC, Vijayvargiya replied curtly “We are talking about implementation of CAA here.”
BJP MP from Bongaon Shantanu Thakur, a member of the Matua community later told reporters “We will be looking forward to Union Home Minister Amit Shah making the announcement on implementation of CAA during his visit to Thakurnagar.”
