Responding to the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act(CAA) TRS party working president and IT Minister KTR said the act is discriminatory.

The IT Minister went on to say that the Telangana government will take a final call on the NRC and NPR, once the Centre asks the government to implement the exercises in the state.

"Wherever we had to speak, we spoke against it (referring to Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha). Why are there so many protests against it? There weren't so many protests when Triple Talaq Bill was passed or when Article 370 was abrogated. This Bill (now Act) raises more questions than answers," KTR said.

"The Act is unacceptable. Why are only Muslims excluded from seeking refugee? This is not good for the country. It is a shame that a democratic country is excluding Muslims. We are a secular party and we reject it," he observed.

"There is no need for apprehensions or prejudice. We have not received any orders from the Centre yet. When we receive, we will sit down, deliberate with the cabinet and then take a decision," he maintained.

"What is the need for this? Economic growth is on a decline and unemployment is increasing. Oil prices are also increasing due to the Iraq-USA crisis," KTR added
