CAA imbrioglio: Has crack started emerging in NDA?

By IndianMandarins- 14 Jan 2020


Some voices of rethink on CAA have started enamating from the ruling NDA, Bihar CM’s statement on discussing it in state Assembly after supporting in Parliament, SAD demanding Muslims to be included in it and LJP too padelling similar opinion but softly. Apparently they want to keep their Muslim voters intact as managing Hindu votes is the responsibility of the BJP for alliance largly.

Kerala has already passed a resolution against CAA in its Assembly, Nitish too wants to discuss it in the house if everyone agrees of which the BJP may and may not agree. However, this will help the BJP speak its mind to reach out to people, some feel. The most important thing that even if the bill is passed against CAA in Assembly after it was cleared by Parliament, it does not have any constitutional validity. So is it just a posturing or more?

Though the Congress and RJD claim lion share of Muslim votes in Bihar but Nitish does not want to loose out whatever he gets when he says there should be a special discussion on CAA in the Bihar Assembly. The JD (U) is baffled with the attack of the RJD and the Congress. JD (U) vice president Prashant Kishor is campaigning against it right from the day one. So something is being discussed in the party. Meanwhile Nitish was more emphatic when he said that there was “no question” or need to implement NRC in Bihar.

Prashant Kishor, tweeted: “…would like to reassure to all – CAA-NRC will not be implemented in Bihar.” Prashant Kishor posted several tweets critical of party boss and even offered his resignation from JD (U). Another ally of the BJP, the Akali Dal, wants Muslims to be included in CAA. Has Nitish become too dependent on him or Kishor following dictate of his boss?
