Shimla: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday said no one would be stripped of their citizenship and accused the Congress of spreading rumours.

Addressing a public rally in the Himachal Pradesh capital on the second anniversary of the BJP government led by Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, Shah in his half-hour address defended the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

“No one will be stripped of their citizenship,” he said.

“The Congress and company are spreading rumours that the citizenship of the minorities will be taken away with the Citizenship Amendment Act,” Shah said.

“I challenge Rahul ‘baba’ to show even one clause in the Act that has provision to take away citizenship of anyone,” said Shah as ongoing anti-CAA protests continued in New Delhi.

He said under this Act there was no provision to take away the citizenship of anyone, even belonging to a minority community.

“This Act has a provision to give citizenship to the those belonging to the minority who came from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan,” Shah said.

He said the Modi government in the Centre has approved One Rank, One Pension that gave relief to so many retired military personnel.

Trying to build bonding, Shah, who donned a Himachali cap, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi shared a special attachment with the state.

“When Modiji became the Prime Minister for the first time, he granted special status to Himachal Pradesh with 90 per cent assistance in centrally-sponsored schemes.”
