Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan on Thursday expressed happiness over the passage of Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019 in Rajya Sabha and said that it will be beneficial for the people who had been deprived of their rights for past several decades.
“Today is a historic day. Our Hindu brothers will now be able to exercise their rights. They were not able to get benefits for the past few decades. They will now be the citizens of India. Not only me, but even the people here are also happy,” he said, during his visit to a refugee camp in New Delhi’s Adarsh Nagar.
