Citizenship Bill wrong in all aspects: Yashwant
Former Union finance minister Yashwant Sinha on Sunday said the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill is "wrong" in all aspects and claimed there is no chance of getting it passed in the Rajya Sabha as the government is "unlikely" to introduce it in the Upper House.
Delivering a lecture on 'State of the Nation and the way forward' here, Sinha, who had quit the BJP last year, appealed the people "not to give a single seat" to the party during the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
"You are concerned whether Citizenship Bill will be passed in Rajya Sabha. I think it is the biggest concern of North East at this moment. All those people I spoke to, they are determined not to pass the Bill. So I do not think the government will dare to pass the Bill. "That's why I believe it will not be passed in this session. So no chance that it will be passed by this govt," he said. Sinha claimed that "this govt is not coming back to power again. So there is no need to worry about the Bill."
