The Indian Muslim league and congress leader Jairam Ramesh has filed a petition against CAA in the Supreme Court. SSC CGL will consider this one of its topics in the exam.
The honorable Supreme Court has decided to examine the constitutional validity of CAA on 18 December 2019 and issued a notice to the central government to seek their response on the petitions filed against the Citizenship amendment act by the second week of January 2020.
