Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee Extends Support to CAA Notification

Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has endorsed the Citizenship (Amendment) Rules, 2024 following the center’s notification on Monday. Gurcharan Singh Grewal, SGPC spokesperson, praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision, stating it benefits Sikhs whose religion was converted in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh. The rules, which facilitate applications for Indian citizenship under CAA-2019, will be processed through an online portal. Meanwhile, Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh criticized the timing of the implementation, alleging political polarization ahead of general elections in Assam and West Bengal, citing delays in rule formulation by the Modi government.
