New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi replying to the Motion of Thanks on the President’s Address in the Lok Sabha, assured that the citizenship of Indians will remain intact with the implementation of Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019.
“I want to clearly state- with the CAA coming, there will be no impact on any citizen of India, practising any faith,” PM Modi said.
PM Modi also lashed out at the opposition over CAA protests.
“Much has been said about CAA, ironically by those who love getting photographed with the group of people who want ‘Tukde Tukde’ of India,” PM Modi said in the lower house of the Parliament.
PM Modi attacked the opposition
“If we worked as per the old ways:
Ram Janmabhoomi issue would have remained unsolved.
Kartarpur Sahib corridor would not be a reality.
There would be no India-Bangladesh land agreement,” PM Modi said in the Lok Sabha.
“Who brought the Emergency?
Who trampled over the Judiciary?
Who has brought the most amendments to the Constitution?
Who imposed Article 356 the most?
Those who did the above need to get a deeper knowledge of our Constitution,” PM Modi said.

Waterways,” PM added.

37 crore people got bank accounts.

13 crore people got gas connections.
2 crore people got their own homes,” PM Modi added.
