Mumbai: BJP national president JP Nadda said on Monday that the implementation of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act had been delayed due to the pandemic and said the law would be implemented soon.
Nadda, who was speaking at a meeting of social groups in North Bengal, accused the Mamata Banerjee government in West Bengal of indulging in “divide and rule politics” in the state to serve the political interests of her party – the TMC, unlike BJP which works for the development of all.
All of you will get the benefit of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act. It has been passed in Parliament. We are committed to this, ”he said in the meeting.
“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the implementation of the CAA has been delayed. But as the situation is improving, work has started and regulations are now being made. It (CAA) will be implemented very soon,” he said.
He exuded confidence that the BJP will form the next government in West Bengal after the state assembly elections in 2021 as the people of the state are fed up with the TMC government’s violence and money culture.
Nadda, who was on a day-long visit to take stock of organizational matters before the 2021 assembly elections, held separate meetings with BJP leaders and social and religious groups from the North Bengal region.
