While speaking at Chandauli, near Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh on Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the Government will not back down from its stance on the abrogation of Article 370 and the implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). He said that the decision of the government will not be rolled back as they are required in the interest of the company.

He said, “For years, India had been waiting for decisions like repealing Article 370 and introduction of CAA. These decisions were necessary for the interest of the country. Despite all the pressure, we stood our ground over these decisions and will remain so.”

The prime minister also said, “we took both these decisions after severe opposition from various corners of the world. We are committed to our decisions and we will continue with them”.

PM Modi’s statement came on a day when 5000 Anti-CAA protestors from Shaheen Bagh were denied permission to meet Home Minister regarding the said issue.

PM Narendra Modi also stated, “A trust has been formed for the construction of a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya. This trust will work rapidly.” He also laid the foundation of around 50 projects worth ₹1,254 crores in Varanasi.

India’s first overnight private train, “Maha Kaal Express” connecting Varanasi, Ujjain and Omkareshwar was also flagged off by PM Modi on Sunday. A 63-feet tall statue of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya was unveiled along with a Memorial Centre. A super-specialty hospital, housing 430 beds was also inaugurated.

Ever seen the CAA had been passed by the Parliament, the country had witnessed 24/7 sit-in Islamist protest at Shaheen Bagh, Muslim mob violence and vandalism of public property. The PM’s statement came as a reassurance to his supporters that the CAA or the decision to revoke Article 370 will not be rolled back by the government despite constitent pressures from the left-liberal groups and some political parties.
