#pinarayivijayan said he won't implement #CAA in #Kerala. Before him #MamataBanerjee said the same thing for #WestBengal. What these CMs are saying is not just rhetorical but meaningful. +
In all other cases of Citizenship by Registration and/or Naturalization, applicants have to liaise with MHA GOI via State DMs & the State Secretariat where it is possible for the State to sabotage & block applicants. +
CAA 2019 implementation must bypass the State Government offices. Else #WestBengal #Kerala such States would sabotage it. Rules need to be such that applicants don't at all need to go via State Secretariat. @AmitShahOffice +

*How #SriLanka got ruined*

Lankans voted for #Rajapakshas knowing very well what they did in the past, including corruption, selling out national assets to #China, #dynastic politics and all.

They still voted for them because Rajapakshas promised things they could not refuse.
1. Their #GST, called VAT Tax, on all products was reduced to 8%, thus making everything cheaper in one stroke. (It also killed the govt revenue). People loved things getting cheaper.
2. The minimum #incometax threshold was changed from 5 Lakhs per annum to 30 Lakhs! Very few earned more than 30L!
A very large part of the population became #tax exempt. This was very popular among the salaried class.
