Ranchi: Union Ministers for Tribal Affairs Arjun Munda said that it was unfortunate to link the NPR with the NRC and CAA.
Addressing a press conference at his residence here he said that a person who considers himself an outsider will be given the citizenship under the CAA but those who want to hide the fact that they are outsiders or refugees than action would be taken against them.
He said that those people who are raising suspicion on the CAA and have doubts should keep themselves aware of the entire facts. He said that even in Ranchi there are many people who are outsiders.
The Union Minister said that those who have managed to leave behind the atrocities and have come to India will be benefitted by the act and this should not be linked with NPR.
