“Like Kerala, our government will also approach the Supreme Court on the issue,” Singh told reporters in an informal chat outside the state Assembly.
In response to a question, the chief minister made it clear that the Census 2021 will be conducted on the old parameters in Punjab.
The new factors added by the Centre for the purpose of the National Population Register (NPR) will not be included, he added.
The Punjab Assembly passed the resolution by voice vote against the CAA, the second state after Kerala to do so.
Ruling Congress and the main opposition Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supported the resolution, the BJP opposed it.
