Union Home Minister Amit Shah reiterated the government’s commitment to implementing the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) ahead of the Lok Sabha elections this year. Addressing the ET NOW Global Business Summit 2024, Shah emphasized that the CAA aims solely to grant citizenship to individuals who faced persecution in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh, reassuring that it does not infringe upon anyone’s Indian citizenship. He pledged to issue the necessary rules for its implementation promptly.

Asserting his party’s electoral prospects, Shah expressed confidence in the BJP securing 370 seats and the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) crossing the 400-seat mark, paving the way for a third consecutive term under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership. He dismissed any uncertainty regarding the election outcome, suggesting that even the opposition, including the Congress, has acknowledged their impending defeat.

Highlighting the BJP’s accomplishments, Shah referenced the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, indicating widespread support for the party. He hinted at the possibility of additional parties joining the NDA while downplaying concerns about the inclusion of certain regional parties, emphasizing the BJP’s selective approach towards coalition expansion.

Shah framed the 2024 polls as a contest between development and mere rhetoric, emphasizing the government’s focus on tangible progress over empty promises. Responding to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s “Bharat Jodo Yatra,” Shah criticized Gandhi’s historical understanding, attributing partition to the Nehru-Gandhi legacy and questioning the moral authority behind such initiatives.

Addressing concerns about the timing of the government’s white paper in Parliament, Shah defended its necessity, citing the need to inform the public about the economic challenges inherited from the previous government. He contrasted the present economic revival and corruption-free governance with the tumultuous conditions prevalent in 2014, justifying the publication of the white paper at this juncture.

Touching upon the sensitive issue of the Ram temple in Ayodhya, Shah acknowledged the sentiments of the people, affirming their longstanding belief in the temple’s construction at the birthplace of Lord Ram. His remarks underscored the government’s alignment with public sentiments and its commitment to addressing historical and contemporary concerns.
