Jaipur: In protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) there is a demonstration in Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh for last two months. Along with this, there are frequent protests in other states of the country. Many state governments have passed resolutions in the assembly to protest against this law. Rajasthan is one of them. Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Friday made a surprise appearance at an anti-CAA protest site, what is seen as a replica of Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh, in Jaipur and said he would be the first one to go to a detention center if asked to furnish details of birthplace of parents.
On Friday, he suddenly reached the protest venue in Jaipur against CAA and NRC. That place is being called the ‘Shaheen Bagh’ of Rajasthan because there are demonstrations there for the last several days. He said, “The NDA government should reconsider the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which is against the spirit of the Constitution, and should come forward to withdraw it so that peace and harmony can be maintained.”
Ashok Gehlot said that Congress and Rajasthan government are with the protesters. If needed, he will be the first to go to the Detention Center. The Chief Minister said that the birthplace of parents is being sought for NPR. He said, “I don’t have information about the birthplace of my parents. If I am asked to provide such details, I might be the first person to go to a detention centre.”
