PM Modi was addressing a rally near Guwahati in Assam.
As Narendra Modi starts a whirlwind tour to the North East India, in what is being deemed a pre-election visit, reports suggest that the prime minister might witness embarrassing protests on the way against his government's move to bring the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill. The Prime Minister also accused those who "destroyed the country", "betrayed Assam" and who weren't honest about implementing the Assam Accord of spreading misinformation about the Bill.
Referring to the problem of infiltration, Modi said his government was committed to complete the work of updating the National Register of Citizens (NRC), which is being conducted under the supervision of the Supreme Court, within the stipulated period."The BJP is committed to solve the infiltration issue and will complete the sealing of the Indo-Bangla border at the earliest", he said. It is necessary to know these people who sit in Delhi and oppose us in Parliament. But the BJP is committed to protecting the culture and resources of Assam and the northeast. Passed by the Lok Sabha during the last Winter Session, the bill is awaiting nod from the Rajya Sabha.
The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill seeks to provide Indian citizenship to Hindus, Jains, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists and Parsis from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan after six years of residence in India even if they do not possess any document. "It is the obligation of India to protect such people", PMModi said. Be it Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Parsis, Christians, and Hindus, who had earlier made a decision to remain in their homes but faced persecution, realised that it is only in India where they can live freely. For decades, they have lived and worked here and contributed to the country. It must be understood that there is a difference between those who forcefully entered the country and those who were "forced to flee their homes to save their lives due to their religion". "Both are not the same".
China on Saturday protested the visit by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh, a contested region located on the border between the two countries. Various groups including the All Assam Students Union (AASU), the Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chhatra Parishad (AJYCP) and the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) have been opposing the citizenship bill for a long time. On the occasion of Modi's visit, a bike rally from Changsari will also be taken out by BJP supporters, where more than 20,000 people will take part.
The government's intent to go ahead with the Bill triggered protests across the northeast.
