PPFA calls for genuine space to citizenship debates

Guwahati, April 21,

Expressing concern over creating sentiments with unhealthy debates and aggressive attacks over the organizations, which reportedly supported the Centre’s initiative to amend the citizenship laws at the Joint Parliamentary Committee hearing in New Delhi recently, the Patriotic People’s Front Assam (PPFA) insists on rational debates over the pertinent issue.

The forum, in a statement issued to the media, claims that a section of Assamese intellectuals and civil society groups have tried their best to project the citizenship amendment bill 2016 in a bias
perception as if the whole initiative is Assam centric.
“Those biased individuals have made the hue and cry that once it turns into a law, millions of Bengali Hindu people from Bangladesh would be dumped into Assam and the practice will continue for decades. So whoever supports the initiative (s)he should be termed as Jatidrohi (read anti Assamese),” said the PPFA statement.
