The Modi government should shun CAA for a grander civilisational purpose called CAA 2.0.
After more than two years since the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) was passed by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government, there is little clarity on the notification of the rules for the implementation of the act. Earlier this week, the Ministry of Home Affairs reached out to the parliamentary committees, requesting more time for the framing of the rules. Since the inception of the act in December 2020, this was the sixth such extension sought.
For what the CAA protests turned out to be, the voters can hardly be blamed for the brewing discontent against the government, particularly Home Minister Amit Shah. However, the government too is constrained by the politics of the day. Truth be told, the government, post the Covid-19 pandemic, is walking on a thin line between bravery and wisdom.
