ANI  |  Politics 

BJP leader Kirit Somaiya on Monday hit out at the Maharashtra government alleging that it had issued a notice to a school in Mumbai for organising an awareness programme on the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

He said that CAA has been passed by Parliament and the President had also given his assent to it.

"It's unfortunate Thackeray Sarkar issued Notice to Dayanand School of Mumbai for program on #CAA, CAA passed by Parliament. President gave assent. Implementation started now. We condemn Maharashtra's Shivsena NCP Congress Govt action," Somaiya tweeted on Monday.

The school had organised the programme last week on the Act, which has triggered widespread protests across the country.
