Kerala moved SC
Yesterday, the Kerala Government has moved the Supreme Court challenging the amended law. It became the first state to move the apex court.
Kerala government said the CAA violates the constitution and strikes at the root of India’s secular and democratic principles. The resolution passed by the state Assembly against CAA has been attached to the petition.
It may be mentioned that protests are taking place across the country against the controversial law.
