BHUBANESWAR: Union home minister
on Friday accused opposition parties of spreading misinformation about the new citizenship law and inciting communal riots.
He said people should come out and ask those fomenting trouble to explain which clause of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act talked about snatching citizenship of people.
“Opposition parties are spreading misinformation that Muslims will lose their Indian citizenship because of the CAA. They are instigating people and fomenting riots,” he told a pro-CAA BJP rally here.
He said no Indian Muslim will lose citizenship because of the new law.
He said the
government addressed several intractable issues that had festered for 70 years, including repeal of provisions of
that gave special status to Jammu and
and prevented its integration with the rest of the country.
