Dimapur, February 18: NPCC president, K Therie today said that Amit Shah’s statement on February 17 at Guwahati to pass the Citizenship Amendment Bill if given opportunity, is a challenge and insult to the NE States.
“We have well understood the ill-conceived idea which is with intent to submerge the identity of NE’s indigenous inhabitants. CAB is with intent to grant citizenship to illegal immigrants and to counter NRC,” he stated.
Therie asked all Northeast likeminded political parties, political leaders must rise above political boundaries to defend Northeast from the draconian law, adding personal ambition should not stand on the way against the interests of the NE.(Page News Service)
