Speaking to the media Chavan said, "We met today and discussed our role in the tri-party ruling alliance. Several issues were discussed including CAA, NRC and contradictory statements made by alliance leaders. We have decided to follow the resolution passed by the Congress Working Committee (CWC) on CAA and NRC and will oppose it. About NPR we will see what the CWC decides. About the Maharashtra government bringing a resolution against CAA, our stand is clear. But it is a coalition government and the Chief Minister has to take a call."
