    Puducherry on Thursday witnessed a massive rally against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC) led by Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy. Addressing the rally, Narayanaswamy said there won’t be any place for the CAA or NRC in Puducherry.

    CM Narayanasamy along with the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) and other political party leaders from the union territory marched to show their solidarity against the CAA and the NRC.

    V Narayanasamy claimed the Citizenship Amendment Act “ignores” Muslims and that he will not implement the newly enacted law, as well as the NRC, in the Union Territory “come what may”.

    The Puducherry chief minister claimed the CAA and the NRC were “ill-conceived” and aimed at achieving the goal of “Hindutva, as championed by the BJP”.

    He said the Congress-ruled state governments have decided to not implement the CAA and the NRC and “I will also do so in Puducherry”.

    “Even Tamils from Sri Lanka residing in India as refugees were persecuted in the Island country. Why you have left them out? Similar is the case with the Rohingyas,” Narayanswamy was quoted as saying by PTI.

    He alleged that the CAA “ignores” Indian Muslims.

    “It cannot be done in a partisan way. You have to include people of all religions. You can’t do it selectively for the people of some religions. Come what may, I will not implement CAA and NRC in Puducherry,” he said.

    More than 3000 gathered in this massive protest and marched a distance of 3km. The rally also witnessed people dressed up like Mahatma Gandhi, Periyar, Jawaharlal Nehru, Ambedkar, Subash Chandra Bose, and several other leaders, marching in the rally.
