Changsari (Assam): PM Narendra Modi on Saturday assured the people of Assam and the Northeast that the citizenship bill will in no way cause harm to their interests. Addressing a public rally in this assembly constituency of Assam Health Minister and BJP-led NEDA convener Himanta Biswa Sarma, he said the NDA government is committed to protecting the language, culture, resources, hopes and aspirations of the people of Assam and the Northeast.

PM Modi was shown black flags in at least two places (Machkhowa and Jalukbari areas) over the Citiz­e­n­ship (Amendment) Bill. Meanwhile, National Peoples Party (NPP) pre­sident and Meghalaya CM Conrad K Sangma threatened that his party will quit BJP-led NDA if the pro­posed legislation is passed in Rajya Sabha. The party also deman­ded that the Centre should not go ahead with passing the bill.
