Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Narayan Tripathi on Tuesday opposed the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act saying that the country should not be divided in the name of religion.
MLA Tripathi said that CAA might be right for vote politics, but not for the country. He said that this is his personal opinion of the act will surely put forward his argument on the party forum.
“I am opposing the CAA with my conscience. This is hindering the brotherhood and peace in the country. People are looking at each other with suspicion,” said Tripathi.
“I come from a village and it is not easy to even make Aadhar cards. People have to carry papers to the local officers for days,” Tripathi added.

A number of protests have been going on across the country against CAA which grants citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Parsis, Buddhists and Christians fleeing religious persecution from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh if they entered India on or before December 31, 2014. The law excludes the Muslims from the list.
