CPI on Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB)
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement on December 05, 2019:
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India expresses its deep concern about government’s attempt to push Citizen (Amendment) Bill (CAB) in this session of Parliament.
These proposed amendments to the Citizenship Act will totally invert the secular character of Indian citizenship as envisioned by the constitution makers and replace it with the majoritarian designs of the BJP-RSS. Recently announced plans to impose the NRC nationwide will only create hatred and animosity between communities and will put strain on the secular, democratic fabric of our Constitution and society.
The Party further states that as government is unable to resolve the economic slowdown, it is indulging in divisive and diversionary tactics to confuse people.
