Maharashtra Assembly on the third day of the winter session in Nagpur witnessed uproar after senior Congress leader and MLA Ashok Chavan dubbed the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) as ‘unconstitutional.’

The former chief minster of the state said the act shouldn’t be implemented in Maharashtra. He added, “Some college students in the state have disapproved CAA. They’ve expressed solidarity with people of the north-east as well.”

NCP MLA Jitendra Awhad said that the law is against the poor of the country and no one can stop another person from criticising it. Soon BJP disrupted the proceedings with sloganeering, due to which Speaker Nana Patole had to adjourn the House for 10 minutes.
