Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday said the BJP is committed to implementing the Citizenship Amendment Act and it is a matter of time that its rules are framed.

It is a Hindu’s legitimate right to become a citizen in his or her motherland and the BJP fully stands by the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA), he said at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit here.

Asked why the rules for the Act had not been framed yet, Sarma pointed out that there were people protesting against the CAA and thereafter, the coronavirus pandemic came.

“It is in the process, but the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) remains committed. The Parliament has passed the legislation, it is a matter of time when you see CAA rules,” he said.
