    Amid anti-CAA stir, a Kerala resident has filed an RTI application to seek proof of PM Narendra Modi’s citizenship. According to the reports, the application has been filed before the information officer of Chalakkudy municipality on January 13.

    Joshy Kalluveettil who filed the petition sought to know whether is an Indian citizen or not. A top official of the municipality, however, said that the query has been forwarded to the office of the Central Public Information Officer (CPIO) in New Delhi.

    Joshy - an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) worker was quoted as saying by the local media that officials were initially reluctant to accept his application and even ridiculed him.

    “I am not doing this as a matter of public interest. My application reflects the concerns of thousands of people about the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). As the possession of a passport or Aadhar card is not sufficient to prove citizenship, people are fearful. I am keen to know whether the prime minister possesses a unique document that makes him an Indian citizen,” Joshy told media.

    “People are concerned they will be asked to submit old documents to prove their citizenship. If the birth certificate is made mandatory to prove citizenship, a majority of those who were born prior to the 1970s will be in trouble as they might not have it,” he said.
