Kerala govt will continue fight against CAA: Minister

A day after it moved the Supreme Court against the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), the Kerala government said it would continue its fight against the legislation as it "destroys" the secularism and democracy in the country.

The CPI(M)-led government had on Monday moved the apex court challenging the CAA and sought to declare it as 'ultra vires' of the Constitution.

State Industries Minister E.P Jayarajan told that the state has moved the apex court and will explore all options to fight the Act.

"The state government will to go to any extent and continue its fight against CAA. This Act destroys the democracy in the country."

"This will only help in implementing the RSS agenda, to drive the nation through a fascist regime, and destroying the secularism and democracy in the country.

The RSS and the Sangh Parivar cannot implement this law just by using muscle power," Jayarajan said.
