Mangaluru, Feb 08, 2020: Deputy Chief Minister and Minister for Higher Education and Medical Education C.N. Ashwath Narayan on Friday called upon the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad to continue its campaign in favour of CAA.
Inaugurating the 39th State-level conference of the ABVP here, Mr. Narayan said the ABVP has been campaigning in favour of CAA and dispelling myths about its connection with NPR and NRC.
“You need to continue it for weeks and months. We are here to provide all possible support for your campaign,” he said. Mr. Narayan said CAA was enacted to provide citizenship to minority communities who have settled in India following religious persecution in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh. The same groups that had made this demand earlier are now opposing this amendment. They are also unnecessarily linking this with NPR and NRC and attempting to create a state of disorder in the country. He said campaigns in favour of CAA should be held in educational institutions and universities.
ABVP national general secretary Ashish Chauhan said the ABVP was prepared to take on forces that are trying to create unrest in country in the guise of anti-CAA protests. Former Nagaland Governor and ABVP president P.B. Acharya said ABVP should stand strong in favour of CAA.
