The JD(U) sticks to its stand on supporting the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s assertion on the ground of the Bihar meeting on Monday shouldn’t be construed as in any other case, an in depth aide to the CM mentioned on Tuesday.
Sanjay Kumar Jha, who’s the states minister for water assets, expressed bewilderment over reviews in a piece of the media stating that Mr Kumar had, in his speech on the day before today, “opposed” CAA and was able to “reconsider” the stand taken by the JD(U) of which he’s the nationwide president.
“It is a misinterpretation. We had been all current contained in the House when the Chief Minister spoke. We had voted for the CAB in Lok Sabha in addition to Rajya Sabha which helped the Bill change into an Act.
“Now, it’s in power and has change into the legislation of the land. The query of opposing it or reconsidering the get together stand doesn’t come up”, Mr Jha instructed PTI.
“Our get together had voted for the Bill considering the truth that it contained no problematic provisions. It aimed toward granting citizenship to some folks and never depriving anyone of the identical.
“When the Chief Minister said he was ready for a discussion on issues which have left the country astir, like CAA, NRC and NPR he was responding to the oppositions demand for the same. That does not mean he was going back on his past stance”, Mr Jha clarified.
Mr Kumar had made the remarks throughout a particular day-long session of the Assembly for approving the 126th Constitution Amendment Bill, handed by Parliament final month.
A strident stance adopted by Prashant Kishor whom the JD(U) chief had inducted in September, 2018 and elevated to the put up of nationwide vp weeks later- had triggered speculations if Mr Kumar was rethinking his stand on the brand new legislation.
