Won't Support Citizenship Bill Until Our Questions Answered: Uddhav

Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday said that his party will oppose the Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2019 in the Rajya Sabha. The development comes hours after Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said those supporting the bill are attempting to destroy the foundation of our nation. The Bill, which seeks to grant citizenship to non-Muslim immigrants from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan if they faced religious persecution there, was passed in the Lok Sabha with 311-80 votes on Monday night, after more than seven hours of debate and discussions.
