The Hindu and Sikh refugees from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, have to live very uncomfortable life and for getting various government benefits including jobs. The BJP has taken the initiative to make their lives easy by providing them citizenship but the Congress government led by Capt in Punjab is opposing for implementation of CAA.
DP Chandan, former Planning Board Chairman said, the introduction of CAA was necessary to rehabilitate such persons who have not yet been any identity despite living in India since long. The Act is not to oust any community rater to rejuvenate them. He said Congress party was afraid of losing their vote bank and did not have the courage to grant legitimacy to these refugees and they are misrepresenting the CAA while Modi is in favour of uplifting of these people of minority communities who were mistreated in their countries.
