Reacting to Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s statement that the CAA will not be withdrawn, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday said it reflected intolerance as the BJP “wants to crush people with the road roller of its majority“. Lashing out at the BJP, the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said the saffron party is making “intolerance” as its identity. “Playing with basic principles of the democracy, the BJP is going ahead with making intolerance its identify. Mr. Shah’s statement that he would implement the CAA at any cost shows that the government wants to crush people with the road roller of its majority,” Mr. Yadav said in a statement here. The SP chief said Mr. Shah’s address in Lucknow “showed his frustration” over this and his party would not let the BJP-RSS agenda run in the country.
