The Bharatiya Janata Party’s ally National People’s Party leader Agatha Sangma has demanded the repeal of the anti-Muslim law, Citizenship (Amendment) Act at a meeting of constituents of the ruling National Democratic Alliance as well as at the all-party meeting convened ahead of the Winter Session of Parliament in New Delhi.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Sangma, the Member of Indian Parliament from Tura in Meghalaya, urged the BJP government that as it has repealed farm laws keeping in mind the sentiments of the people, the CAA should also be repealed.

Sangma made the demand at the all-party meeting called by the government as well as at a meeting of the BJP-led NDA in the presence of Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Union ministers Pralhad Joshi and Piyush Goyal.

“Since the farm laws have been repealed and this was done primarily keeping in mind the sentiments of the people, therefore, I requested the government to repeal the CAA keeping in mind the same sort of sentiments of the people from the Northeast”.—INP
