MIM floor leader in the Telangana Assembly Akbaruddin Owaisi heaped lavish praise on Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for the resolution passed by the Assembly today rejecting the CAA, and said that the Telangana government was treating all sections of society in an equal manner.
Participating in the discussion on the resolution introduced by the state government on the controversial Act in the Assembly, Owaisi said that no other CM in the country had introduced a resolution as straight as that KCR had.
He went so far as to state that he was lucky to have been born in the land ruled by KCR.
Owaisi said that the CAA was not only against the Muslims of the country, but also against all the poor people of the country. He also said that the National Population Register (NPR) did not have any legal status, and that the NRC would create new problems to the citizens of the country.
"While the NRC gives citizenship to foreigners, it takes away the citizenship of the people of the country. The Act is aimed at weakening our country," he said.
He also alleged that the Centre was planning to bring the NPR into force from April 1, 2020. He said that authorities concerned would keep the people who could not provide their complete details under a doubtful citizens category, and that the citizens of this category would have to go to the international court of justice for getting justice.
He also said that the Centre had included a provision in the Act allowing anybody to raise objections against the citizenship of any citizen of the country, and said that such a provision would only lead to blackmailing cases in the country.
Owaisi told the house that 50% of the people of the country didn't have own houses, and that two to three families had the same house number and address. He also claimed that 70% of the people of the country didn't have birth certificates to prove their birth place. The NPR and NRC would be a disaster for the country in a scenario like that, he said.
