Wedding card of Rajasthan man displays pro-CAA-NRC slogan | Jaipur News


JAIPUR: While protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) have intensified across the country, a family from Sikar has come up with slogans in support of the CAA and NRC, on one of their member’s marriage card.

The father of the groom, a tea vendor, has not only printed slogans supporting the Act on the wedding card of his son, but has also urged people to vote for the BJP and Narendra Modi as a gift to his son and daughter-in-law, whose wedding is to be solemnized on February 9. The family has also invited Prime Minister Modi and home minister Amit Shah for the wedding.

Amit Khandelwal (27), who has done his master’s in commerce and is presently running an e-mitra kiosk in Sikar, while talking to TOI on Saturday said, “Due to lack of knowledge, people are protesting against the CAA and NRC everywhere. They are only protesting against the possibilities. Our family supports the CAA and NRC, thus I planned to get a card published with these slogans. It will inspire more people.”

The family has also put a photo of the Prime Minister on the wedding card. “Some people are misleading the country and are indulging in violent protests. I urge people to maintain peace and harmony,” he added.

Khandelwal is the eldest son of Mohan Lal Khandelwal, who runs a tea stall and a flour mill in Sikar town. “Rather than creating confusion, people should appreciate what Modiji and Amit Shahji are doing for the country. I hope our small act will inspire many,” said Mohan Lal.

The family has also sent the wedding invitation card to the PM and the home minister. “We had sent it by registered post and have also received the acknowledgement confirming the receipt of these cards,” said Mohan Lal. The family has so far distributed 700 wedding invitation cards with the slogan, “We support NRC & CAA” and with the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan logo.
