Rectifying historic wrong…this Bill due to Partition, says Amit Shah

New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah today tabled the contentious Bill in the Rajya Sabha, which was cleared by the Lok Sabha with a 311-80 margin at 12.02 am Tuesday. The debate is underway in the House. The government is all set to get the numbers required to pass the Bill despite a U-turn by its former ally Shiv Sena, and murmurs of dissent within its alliance partner JD(U).

Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal, in reply to Home Minister Amit Shah's statement that no Muslim needs to worry over Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2019, said that no Indian Muslim is scared of the current regime. "You made a very objectionable statement earlier. Which Muslim fears you? No Indian Muslim fears from you. Neither I nor any other citizen of the country is scared of you. We fear only from the Constitution of the country," he said.

Speaking for the first time in the Parliament after coming out of Tihar Jail, Congress leader P Chidambaram Wednesday slammed the government in Rajya Sabha for pushing the Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2019 (CAB) in order to further its 'Hindutva' agenda. He also said the Parliamentarians, who are the elected representatives of the job, are burdening the other three pillars of the Constitution by going ahead with this Bill.
