CAA won’t take back anyone’s citizenship: Congress Senior Leader Kapil Sibal

Congress MP Kapil Sibal made a stunning admission in Rajya Sabha. He said that it it was not his contention that CAA will take away citizenship.

Rajya Sabha on Thursday was witnessing a debate on Delhi violence when discussion veered towards Citizenship (Amendment) Act. Union Home Minister Amit Shah, during his speech, said that people were misled on CAA.

It was then, Kapil Sibal rose to speak and said that he does not say that CAA will take away anyone’s citizenship.

Kapil Sibal then raised questions on National Population Register (NPR). In his reply, Home Minister Amit Shah said that no document will be asked for NPR. He also said that if a citizen does not have a particular detail about him or her, the person will not be categorised as D (doubtful). Shah also invited Kapil Sibal and everyone in Rajya Sabha for a discussion if they had any doubts about NPR.
