Maharashtra CM defends CAA but opposes NRC

Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray who grabbed the Chief Minister out of some real drama that happened after the election period. Now, he has a difficult call to make on the ongoing Anti-CAA situation and this Shivsena supremo took a surprising stand.
 
He actually defends the CAA even though it may create issues in the coalition government of the Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party and Congress in Maharashtra as their new alliance partners have already opposed the amendment.
 
Uddhav Thackeray in an interview has said he won't allow the National Register of Citizens (NRC) to implement in the state but has defended the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA).
 
"CAA isn't a law to remove anyone from the country. Proving citizenship will be difficult for both Hindus and Muslims. I will not let that happen," he added.
 
The Shiv Sena had backed the Citizenship Amendment Bill when it got tabled in the Lok Sabha in December 2019. However, after the Congress expressed unhappiness over Sena’s stance, the party did not back the Bill in Rajya Sabha.
