In the hills of Assam, protest against Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB) and Uniform Civil Code is getting louder.
On Tuesday at Diphu's Semson Sing Ingti Memorial Park, the All Party Hills Leaders Conference (APHLC) and social organizations organized sit-in demonstration.
All Party Hills Leaders Conference (APHLC), president, J. I Kathar said, “We are poor people and we are already being marginalized.”
“We will be further marginalized and will lose all our land and economic facilities if the CAB is passed in this Winter Session of Parliament,” he added.
He further said, “Not only Karbis and Dimasas but Assamese themselves are also losing their political rights which is being taken away by Bangladeshis.”
“If the CAB is passed our existence will be in danger and for that reason we are opposing the passing of CAB as well as Uniform Civil Code,” he reiterated.
Via Deputy Commissioner Mukul Kumar Saikia, a memorandum was sent to the President of India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on CAB and UCC.
