Mumbai: When the chief minister Uddhav Thackeray met the Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi a couple of days ago and supported the CAA and the NPR, the Congress on Monday said that it would try to convince Uddhav on these issues and urge him not to implement it.
The senior party leader and Congress MLA from Bandra East, Zeeshan Siddique said that the Shiv Sena-led coalition government in Maharashtra will make its stand clear on the CAA in the assembly session beginning from Today. On the other hand, after meeting with Modi, the chief minister said that no one needs to fear about the CAA and NPR as both the laws would not going to throw anyone out of the country.
This was Thackeray’s first meeting with Modi after taking over as the chief minister of Maharashtra. Thackeray’s Shiv Sena was earlier a part of the BJP-led NDA, but formed the “Maha Vikas Aghadi” government in Maharashtra with the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) after parting ways with the saffron party. Its two principal partners, the Congress and the NCP are opposing the CAA and NPR.
The issue may be raised by the ruling party MLAs in the Assembly for clarifications. A seizable Congress and NCP MLAs want a reply on it from the chief minister, Uddhav Thackeray.
