In a strong rejoinder to Narendra Modi’s statement about anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests in Kerala, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said the Prime Minister’s remark in the Rajya Sabha was “untrue” and “protest-worthy”.
Insisting that Kerala is at the forefront of struggles against the CAA, Vijayan said, “Kerala’s secular ethos is one that is opposed to all forms of communalism. Our secular state has the strength to fend off any sort of infiltrators in this movement as well.”
