Anti-CAB force shoots arrow at Shah

An intervention application has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking action against BJP national president Amit Shah for his statements on NRC and the Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2016 (CAB).

The petition, filed by the Assam Andolan Sangrami Manch (AASM) said Shah had stated that the citizenship bill would come first and then the NRC. Shah had given a wrong message to the people of Assam and “is an onslaught on the judicial process of the Supreme Court.”

It claimed the amendment to the 1955 act allows legally migrated Hindus, Sikh, Christians and Jains from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh to be citizens of Assam, which would affect the interests of the indigenous people.
