Sonowal urges peace after JPC's visit to Assam

Bowing to the pressures of the people the 16-member Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC), headed by BJP MP Rajendra Agarwal, visited the north-eastern state to incorporate the opinions of individual and different organisations.

According to Laishram Peter, the Bill seeks to grant Indian citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and Jains from Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nepal.

If the Bill is implemented the whole Assam Accord which was signed to end the Assam movement, started against the illegal Bangladeshi immigrants irrespective of their religion, will become null and void.

Dramatist Naren Patgiri asserted that apart from violating the Assam Accord, the Bill also violated certain provisions of the Indian Constitution.

The whole step by the BJP government to appease Hindus from other countries is seen as an attempt to divide the state on the grounds of religion.

The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 was introduced in the Lok Sabha on 19 July 19, 2016, to amend the Citizenship Act.

Dass added that these groups are playing with the emotions of the people of Assam and trying to create a law and order situation that would eventually derail the NRC.

However, the state is also not going to take any decision like Meghalaya which opposed the bill, Industry Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary told the media here. They said the bill would breach the terms of the 1985 Assam Accord.

"I will seriously think about the suggestions given by you all here and as advised, I will also discuss the matter with senior citizens and intellectuals in the coming days", he said.

"People should not get agitated as the JPC process for taking their opinion is on". Already the relation between local Assamese and Hindus of other linguistic groups are not cordial due to their dominance over Assamese people in jobs and business If Assam has to take the burden of several lakh Hindu Bangladesh there will be more friction and social unrest in the state. And lets us take a pledge to stop the ulterior motive of BJP government both at the center and state.

Before passing the Bill, Centre constituted a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) comprising of 16 members who are now on a tour of the North East to solicit views on the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill. "It is not double-speak but triple-speak", the Minister said.

Opposition leader in the Assam Assembly Debabrata Saikia today urged Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal to advise the governor and the speaker to summon a special session of the House following protests in the state against the proposed Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016. "It was due to his efforts that saw the IMDT (Illegal Migrants' Determination Tribunal) Act, which made detection of immigrants hard, being struck down (by the Supreme Court)", Patowary said while appealing to the people to have faith on the government.
