Mamata Banerjee

Kolkata, Jan 20 : The West Bengal government is planning to pass a resolution in the state Assembly against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act in the next three-four days, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Monday.

Banerjee also appealed to other states, particularly those in the North-East, to pass such resolutions.

“We have also passed a resolution against NRCA three months ago. We will pass a resolution against CAA also within three-four days,” Banerjee told mediapersons.

The CPI(M)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF) government in Kerala and Congress ruled Punjab have already passed resolutions in the respective state assemblies demanding scrapping of the controversial CAA.

TheA CAA, passed in Parliament last month, seeks to provide Indian nationality to Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, Parsis, Jains and Buddhists fleeing persecution in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh before December 31, 2014.

As per the Act, such communities will not be treated as illegal immigrants now and will be given Indian citizenship.

The legislation, which has come into force on January 10, has led to intense protests across the country, with students coming out on the streets in thousands in almost all the states. Civil society members, anti-BJP political parties and commoners have also joined the protests.

Nirbhaya gangrape Demonstration

New Delhi, Jan 20 : The Supreme Court on Monday rejected a petition of Nirbhaya case convict Pawan Gupta regarding his alleged juvenile status, pointing out that the plea had already been rejected by subordinate courts.

A bench headed by Justice R. Banumathi had earlier queried Pawan’s counsel: “How many times will we hear the same things? You have already raised it many times.”

Pawan has moved the top court to challenge a Delhi High Court order that declined to entertain his plea that he was a juvenile when Nirbhaya was gang raped and brutally assaulted on December 16 night in 2012. She died on December 29, 2012, at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore.

A Juvenile Board in January 2013 had declared that Pawan was not a juvenile when he committed the crime.

While Pawan’s counsel had argued that the prosecution deliberately concealed that he was a juvenile, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta said the prosecution had consistently maintained that the convict was not a juvenile at the time of the crime.

“His birth certificate has been filed on record. The parents never disputed the age at the time of the commission of the crime,” said Mehta.
