Kohima, February 7: The Naga People’s Front (NPF) said it will move for an adjournment motion on Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAA).
Taking part in the debate on Governor’s Address, senior leader NPF and former Minister, Imkong L. Imchen said his party will on Saturday move for an adjournment motion on CAA.
The cock party is expected to ask the Government to withdraw its earlier resolution on CAB and pass a resolution against the CAA.
