CHENNAI: The DMK on Tuesday has sought a resolution against the amended citizenship law and urged the ruling AIADMK to emulate Kerala in Tamil Nadu.
The DMK president MK Stalin expressed happiness with the passing of a resolution by the Kerala Assembly on the Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 by the Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and said it was a welcome move.
“It is the overwhelming desire of the people of this country that every state assembly should adopt such a resolution to guard the basic features of the Constitution,” the DMK chief said in a Facebook post.
The Kerala Assembly on Tuesday passed a resolution demanding the scrapping of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), amid the countrywide protests against the legislation.
However, Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan on Thursday maintained that it has no validity.
“Citizenship Act is purely a Central subject and moreover, in Kerala there is no issue of any illegal migrants. Hence, this resolution passed by the Assembly has no Constitutional or legal validity,” said Khan to the media here on Thursday.
