THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Indian state assembly of Kerala has become the first assembly in India to pass resolution demanding to scrap of controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan tabled the resolution against CAA in the state assembly, saying, “no detention centers will come up in Kerala.”
The resolution asks centre to cancel CAA, no work will be taken up in the state on detention centre. Every party including Ruling CPI(M)-led LDF and opposition UDF supported the resolution except for BJP MLA O Rajagopal, as BJP has only 1 seat in the assembly.
Speaking on this occasion, Congress MLA V D Satheesan said Hindus of India will lead the protest against CAA, and will protect the Muslims as well as preserve secularism of this country.
Reacting on Kerala Assembly’s move to pass anti-CAA resolution, BJP said the move reflects narrow political mindset there.
President, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and leader of Opposition, Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly, MLA M K Stalin said Tamil Nadu government must move a resolution against CAA in the coming assembly session as done by Kerala chief minister in the assembly today.
