New Delhi: Opposition leaders, including Ghulam Nabi Azad and Kapil Sibal of the Congress, were "unable" to state any clause in the Citizenship Amendment Act that takes away the citizenship of any Indian, Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said on Thursday. He said Union Home Minister Amit Shah in his "effective" reply during a discussion in Rajya Sabha has "cleared all misgivings" about the CAA and the National Population Register.

On Shah's response to the discussion on the Delhi violence, Prasad told reporters in Parliament Complex that when the Home Minister asked the opposition leaders, including Azad and Sibal, to state one clause which takes away citizenship of any minority, "they were unable to answer".
