80% of the indigenous people of the Barak Valley have strongly opposed the Citizenship Amendment Bill 2016 during a public hearing conducted recently while 20% of the community support it. This was stated by Seram Herajit, General Secretary of the Indigenous Forum Assam during a press meet organised by the Barak Valley committee at Silchar yesterday.

Herajit said, “It is very unfortunate that some organisations of the Barak Valley in Assam have underestimated the indigenous people of the Barak valley”.

He added that permission for convening meeting by the Indigenous Forum Assam (IFA) on May 30 has been rejected by the district administration however a meeting in support of the Bill was permitted. This showed that the district administration is functioning at the whim of the RSS, Herajit added.

 President of the IFA Monmohan Barman said that the rights of the Indigenous people of Barak have been hijacked by Bangladeshi immigrants.

“It is time now that we stand united and struggle for our right”, the IFA president said.

The president also cautions entering of the Bangladeshi to the NRC and said that the administration should take extreme care of the Bangladeshi who are trying to enrol in the NRC by getting illegal documents from neighbouring states – Manipur and Mizoram. Monmohan Barman also cautions serious agitation if any Bangladeshi were found enrolled in the NRC.
