Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Tuesday informed that his party was not part of the all-party opposition delegation which met President Ramnath Kovind on the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA)  issue.

Raut further told that Maharashtra CM will decide on the implementation of CAA in the state during the cabinet meeting.

It was expected that there will be riots in parts of the country after the law is implemented. This is not good for the country, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut asserted.

Although Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray compared the police crackdown in Jamia Milia Islamia (JMI) to Jallianwalah Bagh massacre, Shiv Sena has not clear its stance on the CAA.

Earlier, Shiv Sena had staged a walkout in Rajya Sabha boycotting the voting on the new citizenship bill. Sena, however, voted in favour of the bill in Lok Sabha.

On Tuesday, the delegation led by Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi, comprising 12 different political parties, met President Ramnath Kovind to raise concern over the ongoing unrest in the country due to the passage of CAB.
