Speaking to OMMCOM NEWS at length, Pinky was amazed at the response her video was getting. She said, “We (Anu, Panchanan and herself) were just hanging out and discussing how to bring forth the goodness that historic bill like CAA was bringing. It was an impromptu song and am very happy that people are appreciating it. Mostly we are happy that our purpose was served and the message came across.”
“The reach of social media is astounding these days and through Twitter and Facebook, we can know for sure how many people have watched my video. Viewers have also commented on the video, and mostly positively,” added Pinky.

She added that CAA will fast-track the process of giving citizenship to persecuted non-Muslims from three neighbouring countries.
