Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin declared on Tuesday that the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) would not be enacted in the state, following the notification of its regulations by the Union government, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, one day earlier.

Stalin dismissed the CAA as divisive and bereft of any use.

In addition, he criticized the BJP government at the Centre for hurriedly announcing the guidelines for enacting the CAA just before the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

The CAA will not be of any service or benefit; on the contrary, it will just serve to further polarize the Indian population. The government’s position is that this statute ought to be repealed because it is completely unwarranted.

Therefore, the Tamil Nadu government will not give any opportunity in any manner to implement the CAA in Tamil Nadu, he said in a press release.

Stalin, the president of the ruling Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), underlined that the CAA was opposed to minority communities, diversity, secularism, and the Tamil refugees from Sri Lanka.

The CAA was approved by the Parliament in 2019 over widespread opposition. For non-Muslim immigrants who came to India before 2014, such as Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Parsis, and Christians, the act expedites the citizenship process. These migrants may be from Bangladesh, Pakistan, or Afghanistan. In addition, the Opposition parties have consistently criticized the CAA Act and caused multiple delays for it.

The Citizenship Amendment Act’s rules were announced by the MHA on Monday. The Union Ministry of Home Affairs said in a post on X, formerly Twitter, that these rules, called the Citizenship (Amendment) Rules, 2024, will enable the persons eligible under CAA-2019 to apply for a grant of Indian citizenship.

Details state that applicants seeking citizenship must declare the year they entered India without proper documentation and submit all of their applications online using a recently created portal.
