TS CM also told that he had spoken to Union Home Minister, Amit Shah and expressed his views against the bill as it is against the Constitution of India.

Talking about the further course of action against the bill, KCR said that he may arrange a mega conclave of all Chief Ministers in Hyderabad.

He disclosed that he had already spoken to 16 Chief Ministers and leaders of various regional parties.

It may be mentioned that earlier, Kerala, Punjab and Rajasthan had passed a resolution against the controversial law.

Supreme Court On CAA

However, the Supreme Court of India on Wednesday refused to pass any order to restrain the operation of CAA and NPR.

Amid widespread protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act or CAA, the Supreme Court is set to hear over 140 petitions on the new citizenship law. A three-judge bench led by Chief Justice SA Bobde is hearing the petitions, most of which demand that the law be withdrawn.

The petitions contend that the new law is illegal and stands against the basic structure of the Constitution. They also say the law is against the right to equality as it will grant citizenship on the basis of religion. Some of the petitions have also sought a freeze on the legislation which came into force on January 10.

The CAA makes a religion test for citizenship in India. The government says it will help grant citizenship to persecuted minorities from three Muslim-majority nations – Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh. Critics, however, fear the law discriminates against Muslims and violates the secular principles of the constitution.
