CAB set to be passed in RS, Biplab sole supporter (2/11/2019) 
The stage seems set for the passage of Citizenship Amendment Bill tomorrow in Rajya Sabha tomorrow. Biplab Deb remains the only supporter of the Bill in the North East as there is confusion on the stand of Assam CM Sarvananda Sonowal. But today some important developments took place in Delhi. The chief ministers of two northeast states, Arunachal Pradesh’s Pema Khandu and Manipur’s N Biren Dingh, Monday voiced their opposition to the contentious Citizenship Amendment Bill and urged Home Minister Rajnath Singh to ensure it was not passed in Rajya Sabha, officials said.During a 30-minute meeting, the two BJP CMs apprised the home minister about the prevailing situation in the Northeast, which has been witnessing continuous protests against the Bill, that seeks to provide Indian nationality to non-Muslims from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan.The two chief minister requested the home minister not to pass the Citizenship Amendment Bill before convincing the people of the Northeast and sought protection of their cultural and linguistic identity, an official said.The home minister asked the chief ministers not to worry and assured that the rights of the indigenous people of the Northeast would not be diluted, the official said.The bill provides for according Indian citizenship to Hindus, Jains, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists and Parsis from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan after seven years of residence in India instead of 12 years, which is the norm currently, even if they do not possess any document.The legislation was passed by the Lok Sabha during the Winter Session on January 8 and has been awaiting Rajya Sabha nod.There has been strong opposition in Assam and other Northeastern states against the bill.Political parties have been protesting on the grounds that the bill seeks to grant nationality to non-Muslims who have come up to December 31, 2014, thereby, increasing the deadline from 1971 as per the Assam Accord.Also, according to the Assam Accord, all illegal immigrants who have come after 1971, irrespective of their religion, have to be deported and this bill violates that.Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced that the bill is an “atonement of the wrong that was done during India’s Partition. India will safeguard all who had been victims of the Partition”.On Saturday, addressing a rally in Assam, Modi said the citizenship bill won’t harm the interests of the people of the region but will provide succour to those who have “embraced the idea and ethos of Mother India”. Another report said, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday cancelled his meeting with Chief Ministers of Northeastern states to discuss the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill which is likely to be tabled in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday.Samajwadi Party Rajya Sabha member Javed Ali Khan has assured the North East Students Organisation (NESO) that his party will vote against the Bill.Rajnath Singh was supposed to meet the Chief Ministers at 4.30 p.m. at his North Block office.The sudden cancellation of the meeting assumes significance in the wake of the ongoing widespread protests against the Bill in the northeastern states. Various civil society groups and political parties are opposing the Bill saying it will have a detrimental effect on the ethnic communities if it becomes a law. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promised to the people of the northeastern states that the Bill will in no way cause harm to their interests.Normal life was derailed in Nagaland and Manipur on Monday as civil society groups sponsored a shutdown in protest against the Bill which seeks to give Indian citizenship to six minority groups from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh."The Samajwadi Party has assured us that his party will vote against the Bill if tabled in the Rajya Sabha," NESO Chairman Samuel Jyrwa said. Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma, who reached New Delhi on Sunday, has made it clear that his National People's Party (NPP) will snap ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance if the Bill is passed in the Rajya Sabha. The Bill was passed by the Lok Sabha on January 8.On January 7, the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) snapped its ties with the BJP and pulled out of Sarbananda Sonowal-led Assam government over the Bill.
