Senior BJP pioneer and MP, Santanu Thakur Wednesday said he will keep in touch with Union Home Minister Amit Shah mentioning him to rapidly actualize the Citizenship Amendment Act(CAA) to guarantee that individuals from politically vital Matua people group to which he has a place get citizenship rights. The Trinamool Congress named it as “fake tears” in front of the following year’s gathering surveys.
“I have chosen to keep in touch with Union Home Minister Amit Shah Ji and our gathering president J P Nadda Ji to demand them to guarantee speedy usage of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). The individuals from the Matua people group are asking me when it will be actualized and they will get their citizenship. I have no answers. “The Matua people group has been battling for their privileges throughout the previous 70 years … The Matias is becoming irritated,” Thakur, who is the MP of Bongaon Lok Sabha seat, a Matua fortress told journalists.
The new Citizenship law was passed in 2019 yet it is yet to be actualized. Responding to the turn of events, senior TMC pioneer and previous MP Mamatabala Thakur, who also has a place with the network, said the BJP is shedding “fake tears” before the state gathering surveys one year from now.
“On the off chance that the Matias are not residents, at that point how could they vote in the 2019 decisions? At whatever point races approach BJP pioneers to talk about the citizenship of Matias. Yet, when the decisions are finished, they don’t discuss it. “The Matias is a lot of residents of this nation and we needn’t bother with any authentication from the BJP in regards to it,” she said.
The Matias, initially hailing from East Pakistan (presently Bangladesh), began moving to West Bengal during the 1950s, generally because of strict mistreatment there. The people group, with an expected populace of 3,000,000 in the state, has an impact at any rate five Lok Sabha seats and sixty get-together seats in North and South 24 Parganas locale.
The Bongaon Lok Sabha seat comprises of 70% the Matua populace. Gatherings slicing across political lines attempt to charm the Matua people group given its discretionary significance in the state.
The new citizenship law rose as a flashpoint a year ago with the TMC restricting like there’s no tomorrow the antagonistic enactment and the BJP squeezing for its usage. The state had seen brutal fights in December a year ago against the execution of CAA.
