Uttar Pradesh becomes the first state in India to implement the Citizenship Amendment Act. The state has ordered to track the migrants from other countries.

Government has been seeing a number of protests across the country ever since it announced the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). The bill that amends the pre-existing Citizenship bill benefits Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Buddhist, Christian and Parsi refugees from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh who sought shelter in India before 2015 in getting Indian citizenship. Students took to the roads to show the government their disagreement with the bill. However, the state of Uttar Pradesh led by Yogi Adityanath has implemented the CAA despite severe protests across India.

The state has ordered the magistrates to track the migrants from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh settled in the state for a decade. The migrants from where are mostly found in Lucknow, Hapur, Rampur, Shahjahanpur, Noida and Ghaziabad. Once tracked, the ones without proper documentation will be deported back to the country.

While Uttar Pradesh has given a green light to the bill, Kerala has gone ahead and passed its anti-CAA resolution as a protest to the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
