Rajasthan becomes third state to pass anti-CAA resolution

Jaipur/IBNS: Despite stiff opposition from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Congress government in Rajasthan on Saturday passed an anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) resolution in the state assembly.

The resolution urges the Centre to rethink on the CAA as the new law creates difference among people on the basis of religion.

With this, Rajasthan became the third state to pass such a resolution amid the nationwide protests against the CAA.

Earlier the Left-ruled Kerala and Congress-ruled Punjab had passed the anti-CAA resolutions.

Agreeing to the demands of its opposition parties Left and Congress, the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government in West Bengal has called a special session in the state assembly on Jan 27 to bring an anti-CAA resolution.

Though several non-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) states have declared they will not implement CAA, Congress leader and advocate Kapil Sibal resonated the claims of the Centre which said a law made by Parliament is applicable to the entire country.

Embarrassing the Opposition, Sibal has doubted whether a state can actually stop implementing any law passed by Parliament.
