The anti CAA resolution will be passed during the budget session to be held in the first week of March.
A statement released by after the cabinet meeting read, "It requested that all religions must be treated as equal before the law. The Cabinet further requested the Central Government to take measures to abrogate the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 which will lead to discriminate on the basis of religion while granting citizenship and thereby jeopardising secularism envisaged in the constitution."
