Suvendu Adhikari, a West Bengal-based BJP leader, urged Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday to implement the citizenship legislation CAA as soon as possible. Amit Shah responded by promising that guidelines for it would be drafted after the COVID prophylactic dosage vaccination exercise was completed.
The Citizenship (Amendment) Act’s implementation will be facilitated by the crafting of its regulations. The Act, which was approved by Parliament in December 2019, has not yet been implemented because there are no regulations. The pandemic breakout has been used as an excuse by the government for not framing them earlier.
Following their discussion, Adhikari, the opposition leader in the state assembly, told reporters that Shah had also given him a list of almost 100 Trinamool Congress leaders who were allegedly involved in the recruiting scandal that led to the arrest of former West Bengal minister Partha Chatterjee.
Adhikari supplied the home minister the letterheads of various TMC leaders, including MLAs, who were reportedly utilised for proposing specific names for jobs by allegedly accepting payments in order to conduct a more thorough investigation and expose everyone engaged in the affair.
