Roaring his voice against the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Act, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam chief MK Stalin said that his party will organize a rally against the Citizenship Act. The said protest will take place on December 23 in Chennai, as informed by the DMK chief.
It has been reported that the decision to hold a rally came after an all-party meeting convened on Wednesday.
As quoted by ANI, he said, “We had a party meeting on the Citizenship Amendment Act, brought by the central government. We passed a resolution for its revocation. We will hold a rally in Chennai against this Act on December 23.” Speaking more about the rally, the DMK leader requested all political parties, students, and youth to join the protest.
While interacting with the media persons, MK Stalin also attacked the incumbent chief minister of Tamil Nadu for extending his support to the legislation. He said that Edappadi K Palaniswami is just following the lines of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah.
Almost all of the parties, from the opposition, have raised their voice against the Citizenship Act that seeks to declare Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, Buddhists, Zorastrian, Parsis, and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan eligible for citizenship who came to India before December 31, 2014.
