Perhaps he want to assure my brothers and sisters of assam that they have nothing to worry after the passing of #CAB. Apparently I want to assure them- no one can take away your rights, unique identity and beautiful culture. It will continue to flourish and grow. PM modi tweeted "The central government and I are totally committed to constitutionally safeguard the political, linguistic, cultural and land rights of the Assamese people as per the spirit of Clause 6". Perhaps the Clause 6 of the assam Accord guaranteed safeguarding local rights, language and culture. Moreover
Home minister amit shah, who tabled the bill in both the houses, has claimed that the bill was only for minority communities in neighbouring countries and had "nothing to do" with muslims in India. "I want to assure all the original residents of assam through this house that the nda government will attend to all their concerns. The Committee constituted under Clause 6 will address the concerns," Mr Shah said while introducing the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019 in the Rajya Sabha.
Moreover assam and neighbouring Tripura have been engulfed in protests over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill or CAB, which enables non-Muslim migrants from pakistan, bangladesh and afghanistan to become indian citizens. Northeastern states are worried that such a law will legitimise thousands of immigrants from neighbouring bangladesh and change the demographics of the region.
