Union Home Minister Amit Shah emphasized that according to Article 11 of the Constitution, the authority to make rules concerning citizenship rests with the Parliament, categorically stating it as a matter of the Centre rather than individual states. He expressed confidence that cooperation would ensue post-elections and criticized the dissemination of misinformation for political appeasement.

Regarding criticism of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) as “anti-Muslim” by All India Majlise-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief Asaduddin Owaisi, Shah refuted the claim, highlighting the absence of religious persecution provisions in countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh. He clarified that the CAA does not entail provisions for the National Register of Citizens (NRC) nor does it revoke anyone’s citizenship.

 Responding to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s apprehensions about the CAA stripping citizenship, Shah accused her of instilling fear and urged her to address infiltration concerns in her state instead. He challenged her to identify any section of the law that threatens citizenship and urged her not to harm Bengali Hindus migrating from Bangladesh.

Shah underscored the success of controlling infiltration in Assam under BJP governance and reiterated the objectives of the CAA, which aims to grant citizenship to persecuted non-Muslim minorities from neighboring countries who arrived in India before December 31, 2014.
