State government has reportedly moved motion for rejecting the continuous Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 in the ensuing third session of the 13th Nagaland Legislative Assembly (NLA) scheduled to begin February 21, 2019.

Reliable sources told Nagaland Post that state government has notified the assembly secretariat for resolution on CAB.

It was also learnt that the assembly secretariat has received letter from the opposition for debate on CAB, but was rejected since the government had already notified on the same issue.

Assembly secretariat admitted that some questions were rejected and the same was replied to the concerned MLAs. However, the secretariat refused to comment on the reason why it was not admitted.

Meanwhile, the opposition MLAs, who are all geared up for the ensuing assembly session, said the party would be meeting on February 20 to plan out the strategies for the session.

Expressing discontentment over the rejection of some of its questions, the opposition has asked why was the ruling government “so discomfort” in taking questions.

Further, the opposition has questioned why the current assembly session was slated to begin on Thursday when assembly session normally begins on Tuesday.

To this, commissioner and secretary, NLA, Benjamin Newmai, said assembly can begin on any day and it was the discretion of the concerned authority.
