Shah addressed a huge public meeting under BJP’s ‘Jan Jagran Abhiyan’ campaign in Lucknow. He asserted that the CAA would not be rolled back. Moreover, Shah pointed out how opposition leaders such as Mamata Banerjee had supported granting citizenship to persecuted refugees in the past.

Amit Shah said, "Akhilesh Yadav should not say anything on this matter as he uses rhetoric on this issue. I also ask Mamata Banerjee what is the problem with CAA. Mamata had supported the idea of providing citizenship to persecuted minorities from neighbouring countries in 2003.”
