A resolution against the amended Citizenship law moved by the Punjab Government has been passed in the state Assembly on Friday. State Minister Brahm Mohindra moved the resolution against the CAA on the second day of the two-day special Assembly session.

"The CAA enacted by Parliament has caused countrywide anguish and social unrest with widespread protests all over the country. The state of Punjab also witnessed protests against this legislation, which were peaceful and involved all segments of our society," Mohindra said while reading out the resolution. 

This move comes days after the Kerala Assembly passed a resolution demanding the scrapping of the controversial law, and became the first state in the country to do so.

Meanwhile, Singh had recently said his government would not allow the implementation of the "brazenly divisive CAA". After a cabinet meeting on Tuesday, his colleagues in the ministry had expressed concern over the implications of the "blatantly unconstitutional and divisive CAA, NRC and NPR."
