Amit Shah Asserts Implementation of Citizenship (Amendment) Act Despite Opposition in Bengal

Union Home Minister Amit Shah emphatically stated on Wednesday that the Central Government is resolute in implementing the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA), dismissing any obstacles. Speaking at a massive public rally, Shah criticized the Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government, accusing it of practicing “appeasement politics.” He urged the people to empower the BJP government in the upcoming assembly polls.

Shah, addressing the crowd, asserted that the CAA is the “country’s law,” and the Modi-led Central government is committed to executing it regardless of challenges. The Citizenship (Amendment) Act, enacted in 2019, aims to facilitate citizenship for migrants from Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi, or Christian communities in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan who entered India on or before December 31, 2014.

Highlighting political violence, corruption, and alleged appeasement in West Bengal, Shah claimed that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has detrimentally impacted the state. He accused her of failing to curb infiltration and allowing the distribution of voter and Aadhar cards to infiltrators.

Shah asserted that the people of Bengal would avenge the alleged ‘political murder’ of BJP leaders in the 2026 assembly polls. He criticized the prevalent issues of infiltration, appeasement, political violence, and corruption in the state, claiming that voters would respond with a two-thirds majority for the BJP in 2026.

Accusing the ‘Trinamool syndicate’ of obstructing funds sent by PM Modi for the welfare of Bengal’s poor, Shah emphasized the need for a BJP government in the state. He contrasted the development at the national level under Modi’s leadership with West Bengal’s alleged lag due to Mamata Banerjee’s politics.

Shah concluded by expressing the people’s desire for a BJP government in West Bengal and urged voters to lay the foundation for it in the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha elections, emphasizing the significance of securing a substantial number of seats for the BJP.
