Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 purely Legal and Constitutional – Satya Pal Jain

Chandigarh December 28, 2019. Sh. Satya Pal Jain, Ex. BJP MP, Additional Solicitor General of India & a member of the National Executive Committee of the BJP has said that recently enacted Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 is a perfectly valid and is absolutely Constitutional, which has been passed by the Parliament in exercise of the powers conferred by Article 11 of the Constitution of India. He said that he is very confident that this amendment will withstands the test of Judicial Review in any Court of law.

            Mr. Jain was addressing a press conference in Chandigarh today in favour of the CAA, as a part of the nationwide awareness campaign, started by the BJP in favour of the CAA.

           Severely criticizing the Congress and other opposition parties for making utterly false and absolutely baseless assertion about the Act, Mr. Jain said that this Act does not take away any right of any citizen of the 130 crore population of India. He said that because of this Act, neither the citizenship of any Indian citizen, may be of any religion, can be take away or will be take away at any time.

           He said that under Article 29 and 30 of the Constitution of India, Indian Constitution gave rights to the minorities in India to manage and preserve their religion, culture etc. etc., which has been upheld by the Hon’ble Courts in a number of judgments. He said that by way of the CAA, the minorities of the neighboring countries, i.e. Afganistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh, have also been given similar rights in the matter of acquiring citizenship of the country. He said that for the purpose of acquiring citizenship, earlier a migrant had to wait for 11 years before he could become a citizen of India, but by the present amendment this period of 11 years has been reduced to 5 years. Similarly, the proviso which has been added now makes it clear that the people belonging to minorities coming from Afganistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh will not be treated as illegal intruders.

            He said that the manner in which the minorities, including Hindu, Sikh, Christian, Parsi, Jain etc., were persecuted in those 3 countries, they had no other option except to rush to India for shelter. He said that the present Central Government led by Prime Minister Sh. Narendra Modi has given shelter to them and by granting citizenship to those people, they have been allowed to live for the rest of their lives like respectable citizens of the country.

           Mr. Jain said that the statements issued by various Chief Ministers, including Capt. Amrinder Singh and Smt. Mamta Banerjee, that they will not allow this amendment to be implemented in their States, are perverse in nature because the State Governments have no role in the implementation of the CAA because it is a Central Act. He said that all the State Governments are bound to honour and respect the laws enacted by the Parliament of India and, in case they flout it, it is the insult and disrespect to the rule of law, Constitution of India and Democratic polity of the country.

           Mr. Jain said that the Congress leaders like Smt. Priyanka Gandhi and Sh. Rahul Gandhi have been frustrated in their political lives to such an extent that they have started making absolutely false statements and using derogatory and foul language against the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India and other leaders of the BJP. He said that the people of this country will never forgive the Congress for betraying the interests of the minority community from abroad and also for carrying out false propaganda against the present Centre Government.

            Mr. Jain said that in case the opposition feels that the amendment carried out by Parliament in Citizenship Act is not valid, they had every right to go to the Supreme Court and challenge the same, instead of resorting to violence and protest etc and causing damage to the public property. He said that people of India have understood the evil design of the Congress and will give them a befitting lesson in the days to come. He advised the opposition leaders to first visit the camps of minority migrants of these 3 countries in various parts of India, study the pitiable conditions under which they are living and then make any statement about them.

Time to pay more attention to personal problems of Women – Satya Pal Jain

Chandigarh, 2nd March 2019. With an aim to take a healthy initiative for women NGO Zenith Roots joined hands with “Nanhe Kadam” and “Rotaract Club” and launched a Stain campaign today by starting a “Period March” from Indian Express point to Yavnika Town Park (Panchkula).It’s the world’s first ever Period March, started on the eve of International Women’s day which targets sensitive women issues.

The march began with a joint flag hosting ceremony by Additional Solicitor General of India (Ex. MP) Sh. Satya Pal Jain.

Sh. Satya Pal Jain said, “I really feel proud to be the part of this campaign. Women today are progressing and making a better world and Mrs Renu Mathur is one of those women who is contributing to empower the women by taking such a great initiative to talk about periods and also teaching each and every women use of biodegradable pads which will not be harmful for the environment thus also contributing towards the swachh bharat. So I only want to say that periods are nothing to be ashamed of we should talk about it so that women do not feel uncomfortable.”

Thanks Padwoman and renowned social worker Mrs Renu Mathur said, “As a woman, I want to aware every woman that she is not an object but a human being with equal rights. People in India think that Periods are a disease for every women .Women feel shy to talk about periods and that’s the reason many of them do not know about the basic hygiene, this is the reason we planned a “Period march” which will hopefully change the views of every individual. Menstruation is a cycle which occurs every month and there’s nothing to be embarrassed. Talking about education of slum children, she appreciated Ms Renu Goel’s work and efforts and Mr Chinmay Abhi, head Rotaract Club Mohali for his major efforts in this march. She further added that the involvement of youth in these subjects matters.”

Among others, Mrs Renu Goyal, Mr. Chinmay Abhi, Mrs Anamika Walia, Mrs Rama Matharu were also present.

The stain campaign is mainly aimed at removing taboos against periods, guiding women not to use dirty cloth but to hygienically use homemade biodegradable sanitary pads which will save them from many diseases that can occur without the use of sanitary pads with the motive of teaching them the value of “Swachh Bharat Swasth Bharat”. The campaign also aims at talking about the labour room abuse which many women are unaware off. The “BetiBachao” campaign is a part of this ongoing effort, said Renu Mathur. Present on the occasion Durga Shakti team from WPS Panchkula also shared information about women’s safety.
