Hitesh Chavda, Gandhinagar: The Central Government has implemented the Citizenship Amendment Act, which gives citizenship of India to those who believe in Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist and Jainism living abroad. In such a situation, a total of 14 members of 4 families of Hinduism living in Gujarat have written a letter to the President demanding the abolition of Indian citizenship or permission for death if there is not citizenship of another country.

Lalji Sarvaiya, the 27-year-old son of the Dalit family living in Ankolali village of Gir Somnath district, was burnt alive by some people. After which the family had to leave the village under compulsion and went to Delvada village of Una Taluka. No help was provided for this Dalit family under the provisions of the Total Rehabilitation Act. Not only this, even in the village where this Dalit family used to stay, the people of this family are facing opposition.

Due to this, this family wrote a letter to the President of India, Ram Nath Kovind demanding to be transferred to another country or allowed to die according to the Citizenship Amendment Act.

Piyush Sarvaiya, who wrote the letter, while talking with Gujarat Exclusive said that “We are citizens of India, we have been living here for generations and yet we have to leave our village and live in another village since 2012, due to which we have been upset. We had made written and oral complaints for the last 8 years, despite this the Gujarat government did not help us as per the rules. Not only this, we were opposed in the village where we went with our family. At present, I live with my family in the village of Delvada, but have been troubled by this way of life. So we have written a letter to the President of India, asking for death if they will not give citizenship of any other country ”.
