BJP now micro soft on Satya Nadella's CAA remark
New Delhi : The Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday used Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella's comments to justify their stand for the nation with an implementation of CAA. The Centre is doing exactly what Microsoft CEO has said in his official statement, the BJP said.
At first Satya Nadella had termed the current situation in India revolving around CAA as 'sad', but later a better narrated official version of his thoughts was released by the Microsoft. He had elaborated in the tweet that every country should define its borders, protect national security and set immigration policy accordingly.
"That is what the government of this country has done. We are looking after national security and protecting borders," BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said.
"As far as immigrants are concerned, there is a process for citizenship. Anybody can apply for citizenship. Even the prime minister has said so. Once they apply for work permit, for citizenship, many have become citizens. Of course, anybody can then do whatever the Constitution has bestowed on them (sic)," the spokesperson said as quoted by PTI.
The official statement tweeted by Microsoft read, "Every country will and should define its borders, protect national security and set immigration policy accordingly. And in democracies, that is something that the people and their governments will debate and define within those bounds. I’m shaped by my Indian heritage, growing up in a multicultural India and my immigrant experience in the United States. My hope is for an India where an immigrant can aspire to found a prosperous start-up or lead a multinational corporation benefitting Indian society and the economy at large."
