Underscoring the government's hard-line, Home Minister Amit Shah in a rally on Tuesday said that the law would not be withdrawn under any circumstance.
Congress Leader Kapil Sibal had said there was no way a state can deny implementation of CAA when it has already been passed by Parliament.
The CAA was passed by the Parliament of India on December 11, 2019, and provides a path to citizenship for members of Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi and Christian religious minorities who have allegedly fled persecution from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan before December 2014.
