The home minister said his assessment on Delhi elections went wrong but asserted that the result of the polls was not a mandate on the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).
In his letter Kannan wrote-
With Respect to your invite to discuss CAA, NRC, and NPR, I am seeking an appointment with you. Since I am not in Delhi at the moment, you may kindly give me a day between your reply to this email request and the time for an appointment.
Looking forward to meeting you
Regards Kannan Gopinathan
He also tweeted to the home minister’s office and asked for an appointment in 3 days.
Kannan Gopinathan resigned from his post as IAS in protest against the repeal of Article 370 of Kashmir and the control of the central government over Kashmir.
