Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday had called for a meeting with all his party MPs to discuss the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB) and other issues related to Parliament.

However, the meeting was cancelled. It was expected that Shiv Sena wanted to discuss important issues but the meeting couldn’t happen.

At the last week of the winter session of Parliament, nearly nine bills are likely to be introduced including CAB and the Personal Data Protection Bill.

Union Home Minister on Monday introduced the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in Lok Sabha amid the ongoing winter session of Parliament. Amid the huge uproar, the bill was introduced in Lok Sabha with 293 Ayes and 82 Nos.

The opposition in Parliament opposed the bill labelling it as “regressive” and “targeted legislation over minority people of India”.

Congress leader Kapil Sibal had earlier today said that CAB is a cab ride with a divisive driver.

Shiv Sena’s stand on CAB also became clear on Monday. In its editorial published in ‘Saamana’, Shiv Sena attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government for doing an “invisible partition” of Hindus and Muslims.
