HM Amit Shah assures no Indian will lose their identity due to CAA

Home Minister Amit Shah has described the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) as mostly political and asserted that no Indian will lose nationality due to the newly enacted legislation. Mr Shah also challenged Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi to show one clause in the CAA under which anyone is going to lose Indian citizenship. Participating at an event organised by a private news channel, Mr Shah once again appealed to the countrymen especially minorities not to fall prey of alleged misinformation being spread by Opposition parties.

The Home Minister said the Census 2021 and the National Population Register (NPR), which government plans to conduct along with the house-listing phase of census from April to September 2020, have nothing to do with the National Register of Citizens (NRC).
