New Delhi: Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Saturday said the Central government is ready to talk to Shaheen Bagh protesters — mainly women camping at Kalindi Kunj-Shaheen Bagh stretch against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and the proposed National Register of Citizens (NRC).
Govt. to clear doubts
“Government is ready to talk to protesters of Shaheen Bagh but then it should be in a structured form and the Narendra Modi government is ready to communicate with them and clear all their doubts they have against CAA,” the Minister tweeted.
Protest at Shaheen Bagh
Protests have been going on at Shaheen Bagh since December 15 last year against the amended citizenship law. This is the first time that the Centre has offered to speak to the protestors.
The amended citizenship law grants citizenship to Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Parsi, Buddhist, and Christian refugees from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh, who came to India before 2015.
