Dimapur, January 30: The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) while welcoming the decision of the Nagaland Cabinet to oppose and reject the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) 2016 has expressed fear that it will perhaps end in a “too little too late” situation.
In a press release, NPCC president K Therie said, “After having voted for the CAB in Parliament and after repeatedly reiterating that the PDA Government does not oppose the Bill, what will be the method of withdrawal of support to the CAB with the new change in their stand? It appears they have failed to do their homework.’
Therie said such flip-flop stand of the PDA Government has clearly exhibited that they cannot be trusted with the future of the people and it will not be beyond them to have changed their stand through mere lip service while pursuing to please their BJP driven agenda.
The NPCC said if the PDA Government is sincere and committed in their stand to ‘oppose and reject’ the CAB, they should disassociate from the BJP and own moral responsibility for the costly mistake and take appropriate action as is deemed fit and proper. (Page News Service)
