He said there is no provision in the amended law for taking anyone's citizenship away.

"A canard is being spread against the CAA by the Congress, SP, BSP, and Trinamool Congress." "The CAA is a law to grant citizenship," he added. "I want to say that irrespective of the protests this will not be withdrawn," he added.
