Cuttack: The opposition is attempting to create misconception about the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) said Union Minister and senior BJP leader Dharmendra Pradhan on Monday while launching a public awareness campaign in support of the Act in Cuttack.
"CAA is an arrangement to provide citizenship to the minorities of three neighbouring countries. However, an environment is being created in the country as if the Act is against the Muslims of India. Thus in order to clarify the Act, the BJP has launched nationwide Jan Jagran Abhiyan," said Pradhan.
The purpose of the Abhiyan is to lift the veil of those who don't want peace in the country, are creating anarchy, speaking language of Pakistan in India and trying to implement the intentions of Pakistan in Indian soil, said the Minister while adding that the campaign is garnering widespread support in Odisha.
The campaign rally consisting of hundreds of BJP supporters commenced from College Square and marched towards Khannagar while passing through Ranihat, Dolamundai and Badambadi Colony.
