Citizenship Amendment Bill to be Tabled in Rajya Sabha, Sec 144 Imposed in Manipur’s Imphal East


Since the Winter Session ends in another day, this is probably the Centre’s last opportunity to try pushing the bill through.

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.”
