Ahead of the discussion in Rajya Sabha over Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Wednesday said that the dynamics in the upper house were different from that of the Lok Sabha. 

While interacting with the media outside the Parliament, Sanjay Raut said that the government will have to clarify the queries made by Shiv Sena before they expect their support on the CAB. 

The scenario in the Rajya Sabha is completely different. We can make our voice hear louder in the upper house. The government should reply to our queries regarding the CAB,” said Sanjay Raut.

Raut further said that the government is trying to create a divide between Hindu and Muslim in the country yet again. 

In its editorial published in ‘Saamana’, Shiv Sena had demanded that the new citizens shouldn’t get voting rights for 25 years while stating that the bill will lead to an “invisible partition” of Hindu and Muslim. 

Sanjay Raut on Wednesday reiterated Shiv Sena’s remarks saying that vote bank politics is not right. “Shiv Sena never works under pressure. We always speak what is in our minds,” said Raut. 

However, Shiv Sena had supported the CAB in Lok Sabha as 18 of their MPs voted in favour of the bill. Later, after Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray’s remarks, Shiv Sena made a U-turn on its stand on the CAB.
