GHMC passes anti-CAA resolution

Mon 10 Feb 2020, 13:27:54
The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) on Saturday became the first civic body in the country to pass a resolution against the implementation of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 (CAA).

The resolution was passed by the Council during the General Body meeting held to approve the budget presented by the corporation. Deputy Mayor Baba Fasiuddin said the BJP-led Centre’s plan to implement CAA is against the Constitution, and democracy is at stake.

Echoing the same, former Mayor Majid Hussain said Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao already expressed his views on opposing the CAA. Hussain said the Telangana Assembly would soon pass a resolution too.

Mayor Bonthu Rammohan said Telangana is a secular State and the State government a secular government. The resolution passed in the GHMC Council would extend support to Chandrashekhar Rao’s plans in setting an example for other States to oppose the citizenship law, he said.
