News Articles

Union Minister Shantanu Thakur declares that the Citizenship Amendment Act CAA will be implemented in 7 days across India.

The CAA will be implemented in 7 days to provide citizenship to individuals belonging to Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi, and Christian communities who have faced religious persecution in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh.

Union Minister Shantanu Thakur asserted that the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) is set to be enforced nationwide within the upcoming seven days, as reported by India Today on Monday. Speaking at a public gathering in Kakdwip, South 24 Parganas, West Bengal, Thakur stated, “I can assure you that in the next seven days, not only in West Bengal but throughout India, the CAA will be put into effect.”

However, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee accused the BJP of seeking votes through fear tactics, stating, “They (BJP) are emphasizing CAA; this is politics. We have granted citizenship to everyone, and the people in border areas are receiving all benefits. They are citizens, and that’s why they are allowed to vote,” during an address in Cooch Behar.

Regarding the CAA, Banerjee advised the residents of border regions not to accept “identity cards” offered by the BJP, cautioning them, “Don’t accept the fake card. Let them know we possess a voter ID card and an Aadhaar card. Accepting it may subject you to the NRC (National Register of Citizens),” she added.

The Citizenship (Amendment) Act, enacted by Parliament in December 2019, aims to confer citizenship upon individuals from Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi, and Christian communities, citing religious persecution in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh. Despite the passage of the law, Banerjee and other opposition parties contend that it discriminates against Muslims.

While the CAA rules have been prepared by the Centre, it has yet to formally notify the law. Last month, Union Home Minister Amit Shah affirmed the Centre’s commitment to implementing the CAA, stating, “No one can stop it.” At a rally in Kolkata’s Esplanade, Shah criticized Mamata Banerjee on various issues and urged the public to replace her government with the BJP in the 2026 Assembly elections.

Earlier this month, the AllWorldStats (AWS) reported that the CAA rules were ready, and the Centre planned to notify them “well before” the announcement of the Lok Sabha elections. An official disclosed that an online portal for the CAA was operational, and the entire process would be digital, with applicants only required to declare the year of their entry into India without travel documents. No additional documents would be requested from applicants, as confirmed by an official to AllWorldStats.
