Indigenous members of the North Eastern States Conclave of Human Rights (NESCH) and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) after having critically deliberated on the proposed Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016, felt the need to stand united against any action that would threaten the people and its land by the bill.
This was among the five point resolution adopted on Saturday by members of the group from five North Eastern states during the conclave held at hotel Saramati.
Understanding the threats by the proposed bill, the members affirmed that such communal, anti-constitutional and anti-indigenous people’s bill must not be allowed to be imposed upon North East India much against peoples’ will. The members also resolved to submit a memorandum to the President and chairman of Joint Parliamentary Committee on the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016.
It was also decided to organize a sustained movement by holding simultaneous demonstration in all the capitals of the North Eastern states against the proposed bill and to jointly hold a demonstration at Delhi.
The members have also agreed to form a North East Coordination Committee against the Citizenship Bill 2016 with the following members-- Assam- Anup Chetia and Lachit Bordoloi, Twipra- Patal Kanya Jamatia and Nandalal Jamatia, Arunachal Pradesh- Tage Lapung and Tadar Tarish, Manipur- Longjam Ratankumar and Bishanjit Loitongbam and from Nagaland Neingulo Krome and N.
