Patna: Amid nationwide protests over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), National Registration of Citizens (NRC), and National Population Register (NPR) Bihar Deputy CM Sushil Modi on Sunday said that the CAA and NRC were here to stay and the process of implementing the NPR will be carried out in Bihar between May 15 to 28.
Speaking at a press conference in Patna, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader accused non-NDA parties of spreading rumors and falsehoods about the CAA in the Muslim community.
"Congress, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and other opposition parties have been engaging in spreading myths and lies about the CAA in the Muslim community. Moreover, some Muslim clerics are also fomenting apprehensions about the CAA by instilling fear among the Muslims. They are being told that India will kick out all Muslims from the country which is an outright lie," the Deputy CM said.
Modi, however, said that the fact that the protests were dying down nationwide indicated people were not buying lies and falsehoods about the CAA anymore and were beginning to realize that it is for the good of the nation and not bad for any community, particularly the Muslims.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
