Amit Shah’s CAB meets with NE bodies evoke lukewarm response


On Friday, the most influential student body of Meghalaya, the Khasi Students ' Union (KSU), submitted a memorandum on the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill to union home minister Amit Shah, 2016.

Through the memorandum, the KSU made it clear in its present form that it opposed the CAB.

Earlier on Monday last, the KSU and the Garo Students’ Union (GSU) had staged a sit-in demonstration in Shillong opposing the CAB.

The protest was under the aegis of North Eastern Students’ Organization (NESO).

In this respect, the two unions also submitted a memorandum to the Governor.

Meanwhile, the union home minister tried to convince the Twipra Students ' Federation (TSF) delegation that CAB is in reality a tool to protect Tripura's indigenous communities at a meeting in the national capital about 9 p.m. on Friday.

Amit Shah tried to convince that it would put an end to illegal immigration in a way once the bill is passed.

However, this coaxing unfazed the TSF it is learned, and they had stuck to their guns that they would never accept CAB.
