‘Citizenship Amendment Bill Won’t Impact N-E People’s Identity,’ Says Ram Madhav


Talking to news agency ANI, he said, “We want to reassure the people of the North-east that this bill is not going to cause any difficulty to their culture, language, identity or interest. Any such situation will be tackled by us.”

The N-E region is on the boil over the issue, more so after the bill was passed in the Lok Sabha. Section-144 has been imposed in Imphal East District of Manipur until further orders due to “situation arising out of intense agitation launched by various Civil Society Organisations against the passing of Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2016, in the Lok Sabha.”  Internet services have also been suspended in wake of protests.
