Imphal, Feb 13,
Peoples’ Alliance Manipur (PAM) has term the Union Government inability to table the contentious Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2016 at Rajya Sabha as a victory of the people.
“There is no incident where the people movement can be suppressed by the ruling regime in history of the world and the suppression of the Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2016, which the people in the entire north east states have been agitating by opposing it tooth and nail showed that peoples’ movement cannot be suppressed by any instrument”, said W. Kameshore, one among the four Convenor of PAM, while speaking to media persons at Manipur Press Club today.
The Bill was already listed in the business of the Rajya Sabha twice but could not be tabled as there was ruckus in the Rajya Sabha for other reason. They may have other reason to leave out the CAB but it is actually the peoples’ movement that they are not able to table it in the Rajya Sabha due to the mass movement in the entire region of NE states, the Convenor of PAM added.
He further said that on February 12, the Bill could not be table by the Hindutva Fascist BJP due to ruckus in the house over issues not related with the CAB. Today too as there are many Bill which has to be passed, the BJP have no time to table it as the session was adjourned sine die.
Another Convenor of the Pam SM Jalal, while thanking the people said that even though the Bill has not been table in the Rajya Sabha people need to be alerted as there are other ways that the Hindutva Fascists BJP may use other means like passing of a similar Bill type act by a decision of the cabinet.
He appealed people to remain alert all time.
The two other Convenor S. Bijenty and Anwar Noojahan also said that people need not celebrate the failure to pass the CAB at the Parliament as the BJP may use any instrument to pass it.
