    The AIADMK has backed the amendment to the Citizenship Act in Parliament and appealed to the people not to believe in "rumours" being spread about the CAA.

    This comes after the Kerala Assembly passed a similar resolution in the state Assembly demanding the scrapping of the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

    While presenting the resolution, Vijayan said the CAA was against the "secular" outlook and fabric of the country and would lead to religion-based discrimination in granting citizenship.

    "The Act contradicts the basic values and principles of the Constitution. In view of the anxiety among the people of the country, the Centre should take steps to drop the CAA and uphold the secular outlook of the Constitution," he said.
