Rethink move against CAA, India tells EU

Posted by:

With the European Parliament set to debate and vote on a motion tabled by a large chunk of its members against the Citizenship Act (CAA), India has issued a warning. Official sources in New Delhi told PTI that the EU Parliament should not take actions that call into question the rights and authority of democratically elected legislatures. “The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) is a matter entirely internal to India and the law was adopted through democratic means after a public debate in both houses of Parliament. The Indian government has stressed that the new Act does not deny any citizenship rights but has been brought in to protect the oppressed minorities of neighbouring countries and provide them citizenship,” PTI reported.
