This came following BJP’s invitation to 25 (as most of them are yet unnamed) foreign political parties to observe the polls in India as general election has kicked in to boost the party’s credibility internationally and at home.

As a setback, a statement, endorsed by members of parliament from New Zealand, Australia, and the United Kingdom, has been issued highlighting the alarming issues surrounding the Citizenship (Amendment) Act 2019 (CAA), which has been criticized as highly discriminatory by the United Nations.
