CAA will not be rolled back, says HM Amit Shah & dares Rahul Gandhi, Mamata Banerjee, Akhilesh Yadav to debate the amended act with him

Home Minister Amit Shah unambiguously told the nation on Tuesday, January 22, that the government will not yield to the protestors to roll back the CAA adding ‘Listen Rahul, Akhilesh and company’: you can abuse us as much as you can but those who raise slogans against the country will be put in jail ‘with obvious reference to ant-national slogans raised from some platforms. Addressing a rally in support of the amended citizenship act at Lucknow, he strongly defended the legislation saying the new law will not be scrapped despite the countrywide protests against it. Shah also declared that construction of a Ram temple “touching the skies” in Ayodhya will begin within three months. He said there is no provision in the amended law for taking anyone’s citizenship away. “A canard is being spread against the CAA by the Congress, SP, BSP, and Trinamool Congress. The CAA is a law to grant citizenship. I want to say that irrespective of the protests this will not be withdrawn,” he added. Shah challenged Congress leaders to hold a discussion with him on CAA at a public forum. He named Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, Samajwadi Party’s Akhilesh Yadav, Bahujan Samaj Party’s Mayawati and TMC chief Mamata Banerjee while throwing the “challenge”. Congress has become blind due to vote bank politics, “he said and blamed the Congress for Partition. He also accused them of supporting those who shouted anti-national slogans in Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).“Two years ago, anti-national slogans were shouted inside JNU. I have come to ask the people whether those who talk about dividing Bharat Mata into thousands of pieces should be put in jail. Modi ji put them in jail and Rahul and company are saying that this is freedom of speech,” Shah said. Meanwhile, at Lucknow’s Ghanta Ghar several hundred women are protesting against CAA. In Delhi, the protest continued against the controversial act at Shaheen Bagh.
