Amit Shah asks people to give missed call on the latest toll-free number to support CAA
New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief and Union Home Minister Amit Shah came up with a neoteric way to seeking people's favour in Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 on Friday. He appealed people to show their support to the new act by giving a missed call on 88662-88662 from their mobiles during he kicked off the pro-CAA campaign from Rajasthan's Jodhpur.
"To extend your support for the historic Citizenship Amendment Act-2019 brought in by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government, to ensure justice to the religiously persecuted minorities from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, kindly give a missed call on 88662-88662," Shah urged.
The saffron party on Thursday launched a toll-free number to get support from people for its pro-CAA campaign. A release issued by BJP's National General Secretary and Rajya Sabha MP Arun Singh said that people can register their support in favour of the campaigns by giving a missed call on the toll-free number.

The toll-free number – 8980808080/18002662020. On dialing this number, the call will be disconnected automatically. The authorities from BJP will get back.

All leading faces of the party, ranging from Union Ministers to organisational leaders, will be travelling to various parts of the country during January 5-15 for the drive, BJP senior leader and Rajya Sabha MP Anil Jain mentioned during a press conference at the party headquarters on Friday.
