Senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid has backed Party leader Kapil Sibal’s recent statement on the CAA. Virtually echoing Sibal’s statement , Khurshid said If something is on the statute book, you have to obey the law, else there are consequences.
Kapil Sibal recently said that the state government’s cannot say ‘no’ to a law passed by Parliament as it would be unconstitutional .
“If the Supreme Court doesn’t interfere, it’ll remain on the statute book. If something is on the statute book, you have to obey the law, else there are consequences,” Khurshid told ANI on Saturday.
Khurshid added: “It is a matter where the state governments have a very serious difference of opinion with the Centre as far as this (CAA) law is concerned. So, we would wait for the final pronouncement made by the SC. Ultimately, the SC will decide and till then everything said, done, not done is provisional and tentative.”
