"With Telangana being a multicultural cosmopolitan society, I deem it necessary to clearly state the government's position on CAA and other related actions of the Centre and hence moving this resolution requesting support from all the members in the house," the chief minister said during the discussion. The assembly has adopted the resolution after a brief discussion with the treasury benches, Congress and the MIM members backing the state government's position on the CAA.
The lone Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) MLA Raja Singh opposed the resolution and tore the copies of the resolution on the floor of the house.
While supporting the resolution moved by the government, the Congress legislature party(CLP) leader M Bhatti Vikramarka demanded that the state government should also bring out a legislation against the implementation of NPR and NRC in Telangana.
In the resolution chief minster Rao alleged that there have been concerned attempts to tinker with the inclusive and non-religious nature of Indian citizenship through the CAA NPR and NRC. "Besides violating principles of equality, non-discrimination, secularism, this concerted attempt will also endanger the lives of vulnerable groups who do not possess adequate documentary proof of citizenship. More over there are serious questions as to the legality and constitutionality of CAA, NPR and NRC," he maintained.
