We don’t support the proposed amendment bill : Meghalaya deputy CM

GUWAHATI : Meghalaya deputy CM Prestone Tynsong said: “We don’t support the proposed amendment bill.

Just because we are NDA partners does not mean we

have to sacrifice the interests of people for an amendment

that does not suit larger good of state.

The Modi government’s Citizenship (Amendment)

Bill, 2016 — proposing citizenship to religious minorities

fleeing Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan because

of persecution — has run into opposition in the Northeast.

Beside meghalaya many others protested bill

While Assam’s BJP government wants a Joint Parliamentary

Committee currently touring the region to hold public

hearings to defer submission of its report until the

state publishes the final draft of the updated National

Register of Citizens (NRC), Meghalaya’s cabinet, of

which BJP is a constituent, has come out against it.

The JPC should gauge the situation after the NRC

is published, when we will know how many illegal

migrants from each religious community are living

in Assam,” a source said, adding “The state would

also want to wait for the NRC before taking its stand.”

Meghalaya deputy CM Prestone Tynsong said: “We

don’t support the proposed amendment bill. Just

because we are NDA partners does not mean we

have to sacrifice the interests of people for an

amendment that does not suit larger good of state.”
