By our Staff Reporter
GUWAHATI, April 17: Protest against the BJP government’s move to accord Indian citizenship to Bangladeshi Hindus is becoming louder in Assam almost every day. Today the Anjuman-E-Ittehad-E-Millat (AIM), Guwahati joined the chorus against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.
Taking to newsmen in the city today, AIM chief adviser Kazimuddin Ahmed said: “The foreigner problem in Assam couldn’t be solved even 32 years after signing the Assam Accord. Assam has been suffering a lot due to this problem, and more suffering is in store for the State so long the problem is not solved once and for all. We condemn the BJP government’s discrimition on the issue of foreigners. They want to accord Indian citizenship to Bangladeshi Hindus now, and they’ll try to accord Indian citizenship to Bangladeshi Muslims as well later. Isn’t it a vote bank policy of the BJP?”
Ahmed said that the AIM would hold a conference in Guwahati on May 21 to brainstorm on the issue of foreigners.
