Imphal, Feb 5,

For the indigenous people of the North Eastern states, the Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2016 is a crush, but for the mainland Northern and southern states it is not, renowned journalist from Guwahati told this newspaper today morning.

For the easterners it’s about protection of the land, identity and culture, but for those in the mainland Indian states in North and South it is politics and as for the BJP they win whether lost or win in Rajya Sabha.

Total MP (Lok Sabha) seat in the eight states of North East is 25. Of this except for Mizoram the BJP had started rooting in the soil of all states with 4 Chief Ministers. As for Assam, Manipur, Tripura and Arunachal Pradesh, the BJP was confident in winning even after the passing of the Bill.

“Of the 25 wining 4 or 5 is okay if the CAB can play well in the state of Wes Bengal which have 42 MPs. CAB’s issue is considered by the BJP to topple the Trinamool Congress”, a political analyst said.

“As you see the BJP is playing hard politics right now in West Bengal giving no notice to the hue and cry of the common people of the NE states, it is natural that North East states are not considered that important as it takes on others”, another Manipur based journalist said.
