Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India, came upon the post guarding the CAA on the internet. He supported the campaign calling online and familiarised the same with the media in New Delhi. The Citizenship Amendment Act, CAA is meant to give refugee at the persecuted refugees and launched a social media campaign in support of the new legislation.
The Prime Minister tweeted that the CAA does not take away anyone’s citizenship.
Understanding the act right, CAA is about giving citizenship to persecuted refugees & not about taking anyone’s citizenship away. Check out this hashtag in Your Voice section of Volunteer module on NaMo App for content, graphics, videos & more. Share & show your support for CAA,
“ he tweeted.
It also asked people to share content, graphics and videos from the prime minister’s NaMo app to show their support for the law, which has triggered protests in different parts of the country.
The Prime Minister also tweeted a video of the Sadhguru saying “do hear this lucid explanation of aspects relating to CAA”.
“Do hear this lucid explanation of aspects relating to CAA and more by @SadhguruJV. He provides historical context, brilliantly highlights our culture of brotherhood. He also calls out the misinformation by vested interest groups. #IndiaSupportsCAA,” the PM tweeted from his official handle.
Spread facts and not myths!
Earlier on or before December 30th, the BJP also launched a social media campaign, “Spread Facts Not Myth“, in support of the Citizenship Act and in a series of tweets, the party has addressed various issues related to the new legislation.
In its tweet, the party clarified that the new legislation does not change the existing legal provisions which give citizenship to foreign residents.
The campaign claimed and disproved all the empty speculations such as, the CAA dilutes the 1985 Assam Accord and what not? The Assam accord, which aims to protect the Assamese culture, economic and political rights.
Further adding that the linguistic, cultural and social identity of the people of northeast is not under a threat.
“No provision of Article 371 would be violated,” the party tweeted.
The party said that areas included in the Inner Line Permit have been excluded from the purview of the CAA. The party further added that the Act will ensure that only genuine people who have faced persecution, and not “intruders”, will be given citizenship under the new law.
Do hear this lucid explanation of aspects relating to CAA and more by @SadhguruJV.
