Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Sunday said that following the Centre’s decision to repeal the three farm laws, the “political drama had already begun” with the growing demands of withdrawal of Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and scrapping of the move to abrogate Article 370, which conferred special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
The Union Minister of Minority Affairs defended the CAA, contending that it was not about taking away anyone’s citizenship and also hailed the abrogation of Article 370, saying it has helped resolve many issues in Jammu and Kashmir.
“Political drama has begun. Somebody says CAA should be repealed, abrogation of Article 370 should be scrapped. They know it well that CAA isn’t about taking away citizenship but providing citizenship to oppressed minorities in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Afghanistan,” Naqvi said while addressing media in Moradabad.
“With the abrogation of Article 370, a lot of issues have been resolved in Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh and people have been brought to the mainstream. They are also becoming a part of political process,” he added.
