Dehradun (Uttarakhand) [India], Feb 20 (ANI): Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad on Wednesday challenged the government to implement the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), National Population Register (NPR) and National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the country.

"We will not let implement CAA, NPR and NRC implement in the country, the government should know. This is my challenge," said Chandrashekhar.
