Mumbai : Even after the chief minister Uddhav Thackeray asserted that his government would implement the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), the NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Tuesday said the alliance partners may discuss the issue and that Maharashtra chief minister Thackeray was entitled to his view.’
Pawar made it clear that NCP’s stand is clear over the new citizenship law and it stands firm in opposing the CAA. “Whatever Uddhav Thackeray said, that is his view. He is the chief minister of Maharashtra, he has his own views. Yes, in Maharashtra we are in a coalition government and opinion and views of the parties on certain issues may differ, but we can sit and discuss on it as far as CAA is concerned,” said Pawar.
The chief minister Thackeray earlier today said that there is no need to worry if the CAA is implemented. He reiterated that the National Register of Citizens (NRC) will not be implemented in the state. The CAA and NRC both are different and NPR is different. No one has to worry if CAA gets implemented, he further said.
