Congress-ruled Rajasthan will not implement the amended Citizenship Act, state's Parliamentary Affairs Minister Shanti Dhariwal said on Saturday.
"We are not going to implement this act in the state," Dhariwal told reporters here. He said that the Act was a "blow" on secularism.
Dhariwal, who is the Minister of Urban Development as well, also said that Jaipur Metro will become operational between Chandpole and Choti Chaupad (phase 1b) by March next year.
Presently, the metro operates from Mansarover to Chandpole. Dhariwal also informed that the work on identification of route for the second phase of Jaipur Metro is underway.
