Cong promises no CAA, NPR & NRC in Delhi

New Delhi, Jan 5: The Congress here on Sunday demanded one-day special Delhi Assembly session to clear the ruling Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) stand over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and also announced that if voted to power it would not allow the CAA, the NPR and the NRC in Delhi.

Ajay Maken, Delhi Congress manifesto committee chairman, tweeted, “Congress big announcement about CAA, NPR and NRC – will not apply in Delhi if they come to power.”

The CAA offers to give citizenship to refugees of the religiously persecuted communities — Hindu, Sikh, Parsi, Buddhist and Christian — from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
