State BJP chief Ranjeet Kumar Dass said that the party will soon implement Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
Speaking to ANI, Dass said, “Assam election campaign is in full swing. But top BJP leaders are keeping a distance from the issue of CAA, as after its approval from Parliament, Assam witnessed a lot of protests against the law.”
The state BJP chief in Majuli said, “We have passed the Bill in the Parliament and we stand by it. Once the regulation for it is completed, and if we come back to power in Assam, we will implement CAA. There is no question of going back on the issue even during election time.”
The BJP state chief claimed that the CAA is not an issue in the upcoming Assembly elections in the state as people will vote logically, not emotionally. He said that they were convinced that not a single foreigner can illegally settle in Assam as long as the BJP is in power in the state.
