NEW DELHI: JD(U) vice-president Prashant Kishor came out with a two-point strategy to prevent the implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Act and the National Register of Citizens in the country.

Kishor’s opposition to the CAA is well known as he had earlier come out to oppose the amended citizenship law despite his party supporting the Modi government’s decision.

“Two effective ways to stop the implementation of#CAA_NRC are;1-Keep protesting peacefully by raising your voice on all platforms,& 2-Ensure most if not ALL of the 16 non-BJP CMs say NO to NRC in their states. Everything else important as they may is largely tokenism (sic),” Kishor tweeted, terming the CAA and the NRC as a “lethal combo” in the hands of the government to discriminate and prosecute the people on the basis of religion.

Earlier, he had raised the banner of protest against JD(U)’s decision to support the CAA.

“Disappointed to see JD(U) supporting #CAB that discriminates right of citizens on the basis of religion. It's incongruous with the party’s constitution that carries the world secular thrice on the very first page and the leadership that is supposedly guided by Gandhian ideals,” he had tweeted.

Kishor had then sat with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to discuss the issue for nearly 90 minutes.

After coming out from Nitish’s residence, he had told the media persons that Nitish Kumar was also not in favour of the NRC in Bihar.
