BJP national president JP Nadda on Monday said that the implementation of Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will be executed soon.
He made the statement during meeting of social groups in north Bengal on Monday.
“All of you will get the benefits of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act. It has been passed in Parliament. We are committed to it,” said Nadda.
“Due to COVID-19 pandemic, implementation of CAA got delayed. But as the situation is slowing improving, work has started and rules are now being framed. It will be implemented very soon,” he added.
During the meeting, he also accused West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of indulging in “divide and rule politics” to serve the political interests of her party unlike BJP which is working for the development of all.
The BJP national president is on a day-long visit to Bengal to take stock of organisational matters ahead of 2021 assembly elections and held separate meetings with BJP leaders in north Bengal and social and religious groups.
