BJP again spoke about CAA recently. On Sunday, BJP President Amit Shah blamed Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. This was for instigating “riots” by “misleading” individuals on the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and attempted to convince Muslims. He claimed that the law has no scope to take away minority nationality.
Shah, also the Union Home Minister, addressing a meeting of Delhi BJP employees, criticized Pakistan for “terrorizing” Sikhs. He pointed to the latest assault by a violent mob on Gurdwara Nankana Sahib in Pakistan. He further asked opposition members to open their eyes to violence against minorities in the neighboring nation.
“This is an answer to all those opposing the CAA. Tell me if these Sikhs who were attacked the other day in Gurdwara Nankana Sahib will not come to India, then where they will go?” he asked.

Leaders of the opposition spread a pack of lies over the CAA, he said, asking BJP staff to launch an intense campaign to educate the masses about its characteristics.
.Its beneficiaries are primarily Dalits and poor, and those opposed to the law are against such individuals, Shah said. He called for challenging Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Gandhi’s “anti-Dalits”
“(Arvind) Kejriwal has misled people. The Congress, especially Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi, has instigated riots by misleading people. Do you want a government in Delhi that incites riots for politics,” he asked.
He said the opposition was threatening minorities against the CAA by saying they would lose their citizenship.
“I want to tell brothers and sisters from the minority that none of them can lose their citizenship because the CAA has no provision about taking it away,” Shah said.
The leader of the BJP also said that Congress Secretary-General Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had provided her aid to the rioters by announcing that she would visit the homes of the rioters.
The CAA intends to grant citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Christians, Jains, and Parsis. These are those who, due to religious oppression, arrived in India from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh on 31 December 2014.
Opposition parties have called for the legislation against the Constitution of India to make religion a basis for citizenship.
The country has been experiencing demonstrations against the amended citizenship legislation, with demonstrators alleging that it is possible to use the CAA to discriminate against individuals in tandem with other citizenship measures such as NPR and NRC.
