Govt did not take anyone into confidence before bringing CAA: Mayawati

Speaking to reporters here, Mayawati said, "Centre has not taken anyone into confidence which is very sad. That is why, there is a 'haahaakaar' (outcry) in the country."

BSP chief Mayawati on Wednesday said it is "sad" that the government had not taken anyone into "confidence" before bringing the Citizenship Amendment Act and asked the Centre to withdraw it.

Speaking to reporters here, Mayawati said, "Centre has not taken anyone into confidence which is very sad. That is why, there is a 'haahaakaar' (outcry) in the country."

She said, "Even in the neighbouring country of Pakistan, Muslims are oppressed by the government. Crime and atrocities can happen with anyone. Hence, the Centre should reconsider CAA, withdraw it, and bring a new law after consensus."
