New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party National President, JP Nadda said that the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) will be implemented 'very soon' and it got delayed due to the pandemic. He said this in a rally in Siliguri, West Bengal.
The country saw a trail of rage and violence during the anti-CAA protests from December 2020 to March 2021. However, with the coming in of the pandemic, the protests were halted due to the nationwide lockdown.
Nadda further said that BJP is committed to implementing CAA, and everyone will get its benefit. He is on a visit to Siliguri to take stock of the party matters ahead of the upcoming West Bengal assembly election of 2021.
Nadda also took on All India Trinamool Congress as he said, "Unlike TMC, BJP works for the development of all."
Earlier in August, the home ministry told a parliamentary standing committee that the ministry will need three more months to frame the rules of CAA.
Despite it being passed last year, the CAA implementation is held back due to the absence of rules.
