India on Sunday reacted strongly to six resolutions drafted by the European Parliament lawmakers on India’s Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) which would be tabled and debated next Wednesday and voted on the day after.

In response to the draft resolution ahead of a vote on a resolution against India’s new citizenship law, the Indian government sources said the EU Parliament should not take actions that call into question the rights and authority of democratically elected legislatures.
The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) is a matter entirely internal to India and the law was adopted through democratic means after a public debate in both houses of Parliament, they said.
