As the Citizenship Bill creates heat in the North-East, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a tour and has reiterated that false and misinformation is being spread in Assam regarding the Bill.

PM Modi has emphasized that there is no room for “intruders” and that some people have “destroyed the country and Assam.” Although, PM Modi has said that he and his government is committed towards safeguarding the rights and interests of the people of northeast.

PM Modi, while speaking in a rally in Assam said, “Those who sit in AC rooms in Delhi, who fight us in the parliament are spreading misinformation. But the BJP is committed to protecting the culture and resources of Assam and the northeast. The Clause 6, which is the soul of Assam Accord, has remained unimplemented for the last 35 years and our government will implement it in letter and spirit.”

PM Modi, further said, “Be it from Pakistan, Afghanistan or Bangladesh... they were all part of India once, but after Partition they became minorities in their own countries. Be it Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Parsis, Christians, and Hindus, who had earlier decided to remain in their homes but faced persecution, realised that it is only in India where they can live freely. So they ran away and came to India seeking refuge. For decades, they have lived and worked here and contributed to the country. They must now get recognition as Indian citizens.”
