Taking this opportunity “Hello Mumbai News” got and exclusive interview with Bollywood actress “Nikah” fame Salma Agha for her candid views on the much debated Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB).
The actress said ” It will be premature to make ant comment on this bill because we will have to wait and watch on how it will be implemented. As per my views the senior citizen and the poor people of our country will face lot of hassles in that how will they get access to their old documents- secondly it will create lot of hurdles to those residing in India for the last decades. Infact the Maharashtra Government is already upset with this bill and I feel that it will add to problems in the near future .How will those born at home and not in an hospital will collect their documents. Hence the government should give it a second thought prior to implementing this bill across the country.
