The North East Students’ Organisation (N.E.S.O) an apex body comprising of eight students organizations of the seven North Eastern states expressed gratitude to the people of North Eastern states and all the constituent organizations of NESO for their co-operation in making the North East bandh a total success.

In a press statement signed by Chairman of NESO Samuel B. Jyrwa and Secretary General of NESO Sinam Prakash, the organization said that even though the bandh have caused inconvenience but for the purpose of highlighting the strong opposition to the Citizenship Amendment Bill 2016 the organisation have no other alternative but to resort to the form of agitation in order to show the unity of the people of North East state.
He added that inspite of the wide protest in North East, the Government of India passed the bill in Lok Sabha showing the disregard attitude to the North East people and claimed that the government did it intentionally to reduce the indigenous people of the North East to a minority in their own land.
Finally the statement added that NESO will keep following up on this issue and will take appropriate decisions regarding the matter and appeal the people to support so as to protect the distinct identity and the future generations.
