The Kerala legislature has passed a proposal to repeal the citizenship law
The proposal to repeal India’s controversial Revised Citizenship Act (CAA) has been passed in the Kerala Assembly.
The proposal was passed in a special session of the legislature on Tuesday. The state government proposed canceling the CAA. Opponents agreed.
Although former Union Minister of BJP MLA Rajagopal opposed the CAA proposal in the Legislative Assembly on Friday, the demand for repealing the law was a sign of narrowing. But his opposition to the legislature had no effect.
The Chief Minister of the state “Pinarai”, read out the anti-Vijayan Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) certificate. At the time, he said that the law for granting religious citizenship was violating India’s ideology of secularism. This law is in direct conflict with the ideals of the Constitution. Concerns have been raised across the country as this law is passed. The Center should repeal this law for the sake of secularism. He also informed us that there will be no detention camp in Kerala.
Earlier on Sunday, Pinarayi Vijayan called an all-party meeting to bring a proposal on the repeal of the Citizenship Act (CAA). There, the Congress-led UDF (United Democratic Front) demanded that a resolution be withdrawn by holding a one-day special session (CAA). The last day of the year is set for this session.
