C'garh, Telangana to join anti-CAA 'league'


New Delhi/Raipur, The Chhattisgarh and the Telangana governments are likely to pass anti-CAA resolutions soon in the respective state Assemblies. Reports reaching the National Capital said that the Bhupesh Baghel-led government in Chhattsigarh on Thursday indicated that the resolution demanding scrapping of the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) is likely to be tabled in the upcoming budget session of the state Assembly next month.

The reports also informed that Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on January 25 said that the state Assembly is likely to pass a similar resolution soon. Mr Baghel also said the state cabinet could consider the draft of the resolution, sources said. Earlier Left- ruled Kerala, Congress-ruled Punjab & Rajasthan and the Mamata Banerjee-headed Trinamool Congress government in Bengal have already adopted similar resolutions.

The state governments 'in unison' have mentioned that the CAA is against the secular fabric of the country. In the last of the 'revolts' against the CAA, the Bengal government had passed the resolution in the state Assembly on Jan 27.
