Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan launched a scathing attack on the BJP-led Centre over the implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and said that the amendment of the act aims to legalize the ideology of hatred of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

Addressing a public meeting in Kollam, the Chief Minister said, “We all know that the ideology of the RSS is hatred. Citizenship based on religion is anti-constitutional and against the idea of democracy.”

“We should see it as a violation of basic principles. No government has the right to pass a law that violates the fundamental rights of citizens.
