Union Home Minister Amit Shah Addresses Matua Community on Citizenship Concerns

During a rally in Bongaon, Union Home Minister Amit Shah reassured the Matua community that they would obtain citizenship under the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). Shah criticized West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, accusing her of spreading false information and trying to obstruct the implementation of the CAA in the state. He emphasized that citizenship is within the jurisdiction of the central government, not the state government, and that the Matua community members would not face any obstacles in their path to citizenship.

Shah reaffirmed Prime Minister Modi's promise of granting citizenship to refugee brothers and assured the Matua community that they would be able to live in India with dignity and respect. He debunked Banerjee's claims that applying for citizenship under the CAA would lead to problems, stating that the central government is committed to facilitating a smooth process for individuals seeking citizenship through this law. Shah's words aimed to address concerns within the Matua community regarding their citizenship status and alleviate any fear or confusion surrounding the CAA's implementation.
