New Delhi: The Union government has termed the decision of European Parliament to defer voting on a resolution against CAA as a “diplomatic victory” for India.
The sources said: “Friends of India prevailed over friends of Pakistan in the European Parliament”.
Reports said the European Parliament was expected to vote on a final joint resolution on the Citizenship Amendment Act put forward by 560 of its 751 members from five different groups.
They were of the view that it was discriminatory against Muslims and violates India’s international obligations.
The European Parliament resolution expresses concern over the National Register of Citizens – an exercise aimed at identifying illegal immigrants in the country.
