Congress, which is opposing Citizenship Amendment Act, is speaking in the same language as that of Pakistan," said union minister for parliamentary affairs Prahlad Joshi. The Congress, which is frustrated by a chain of defeats, is fighting against the Citizenship Amendment Act CAA , having been driven by the sole aim of seeking revenge," he alleged. He said that the union government has already issued notification, implementing the said act all over the country. He termed the stand taken by the Congress and opposition parties to fight against the act at this juncture as outright wrong.
