The general secretary of Diphu Regional Students Union (DRSU) of All Assam Students Union, Shorjun Hanse said, “The controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016 should be withdrawn by the Centre. If the Cabinet Committee of the government of Meghalaya can oppose the Bill, then why not the government of Assam?”
He said if the Assam Accord is implemented then the indigenous communities in Assam will get protection.
The Indo-Bangla border should be sealed as a large number of illegal migrants are entering Assam.
A bilateral discussion between India and Bangladesh government should be held for deportation of illegal migrants to Bangladesh.
