The EU (European Union) has distanced from the 6 resolutions against the CAA that have been submitted in the EU Parliament by authorities from 6 different political groups.
The European Union has distanced itself in both settlements against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) which were filed in the European Parliament from lawmakers from six governmental circles.
EU Spokesperson for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Virginie Battu-Henriksson, told India Today TV the opinions expressed by EU Parliament plus a few its members weren’t reflective of their “official position” of their 28-member political and economic union.
Close to 600 lawmakers at the EU Parliament transferred six settlements contrary to the CAA, stating the enactment of this legislation marked a change in the citizenship regime of India.
The settlements have evoked strong responses from the Modi government, Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha Speakers who’ve stated a foreign legislature has no business commenting on India’s internal issues.
The EU spokesperson has stated, “According to its routine processes, the European Parliament released the draft settlements. It’s very important to remember that these texts are drafts tabled by several groups in the European Parliament. Allow me to also remind you that the opinions expressed by the European Parliament and its members don’t reflect the official position of the European Union.”
