Ashok Koul, while speaking to media said that instead of having debate based on facts, some opposition parties are bent on subverting discourse or the truth, by spreading completely absurd lies and what is lost in their discourse is the plight of those who suffered untold sufferings since the partition of India and CAA aims to provide citizenship to those people without affecting citizenship rights of any existing citizen.
Yudhvir Sethi said that while this piece of legislation would help to uphold human rights of the people who have been persecuted for their religious beliefs in the countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan, and have been living an inhuman and uncertain life in India for many years and urged people to confront parties like Congress who are peddling lies.

He said the opponents of the CAA and the NRC were misinformed and did not want to talk on facts or listen to the facts. He further insisted that BJYM will leave no stone unturned to stop the misinformation campaign of the opposition.
