Co-ordination Committee (CC) of tribe hohos, CSOs, and indigenous groups of Nagaland has acknowledged the contribution of the Naga people in forcing the government to not table the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in the Rajya Sabha, which adjourned sine die on Wednesday.
CC through its media cell said Centrw was adamant in its stand to pass the Bill in the Rajya Sabha even brushing aside the strong opposition of its own governments in Assam and Manipur. “It was only because of public protests and mobilisation in Manipur, Assam, Tripura, Mizoram, Nagaland, Arunachal and Meghalaya; after the spectre of revolt and secession in Assam and Mizoram had been raised; that the most controversial constitutional bill in independent India got stalled in the Rajya Sabha,” the committee said.
CC said mere appeals without street protests and agitations in the region would have ensured the easy passage of Bill. It said the state governments should instead be thankful to the organisations and the agitators for saving their face and the destiny and the future of the North East people.
Describing the lapse of the Bill as “moral victory”, the committee said it would continue to closely monitor the situation as entrusted and mandated.
Meanwhile, CC lauded the citizens of Nagaland for the peaceful conduct of February 11, Nagaland bandh. It also appreciated the district administrations and the police force for respecting the sentiments of the people. Despite the short notice of bandh call and no deployment of volunteers, the committee said a clear message was sent out to NE states and the Centre that Nagas totally opposed the Bill.
