The Bihar Govt has written to the Centre seeking omission of contentious clauses from NPR forms, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar addressed the state assembly on Tuesday. Nitish Kumar’s statement caused quite a stir in the Bihar Assembly polls after BJP members strongly objected to the opposition describing the Citizenship Amendment Act as “Kala kanoon”, leading to brief adjournment of House proceedings.
“Even I don’t know when my mother was born. There is no need to bring about NRC,” said Kumar.
During the debate on the adjournment motion on CAA-NPR-NRC trouble erupted, which was moved by Leader of the Opposition Tejashwi Yadav and others and approved by Speaker Vijay Kumar Chaudhary after initial objection raised by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Shravan Kumar.
Nitish Kumar said it should be taken up at a suitable time and not during the Question Hour.
CM Nitish Kumar has provided assurances that the issue will be debated during “the next session”.
BJP ministers Nand Kishore Yadav and Vijay Kumar Sinha strongly objected this, who countered the opposition with the question “does Parliament pass a black law?”
Heated exchanges were thrown around from both sides and finally, the House proceedings remained adjourned for 15 minutes.
