Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday said the government will not rest until each oppressed Pakistani refugee is given Indian citizenship. Speaking at a public meeting organised here to drum up support for the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA), Amit Shah, said, "Congress people, listen...Oppose (CAA) to the extent you can. But we won't sit quiet till each oppressed refugee from Pakistan gets Indian citizenship," he said.

"We will rest only after giving citizenship to all these people. Nobody can stop us from doing so," he added. "The Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist and Christian refugees from Pakistan have the same rights in India as we have," he said.
