By our Staff Reporter
GUWAHATI, Nov 4: The Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) has asked the RSS as to how the latter got the right to challenge the Assam Accord. Reacting to RSS’ recent statement in a section of the press that ‘entry of even one crore Hindu Bangladeshis cannot outnumber Assamese population’. In a statement issued to the press today by APCC senior spokesperson Bobbeeta Sarma, the State PCC asked the RSS as to who had given them the right to challenge the implementation of the Assam Accord according to which no Bangladeshi, whether Hindus or Muslims who entered Assam after March 25, 1971 could given Indian citizenship. “Secondly, the Indian Constitution does not grant citizenship on the basis of religion. Hence by propagating grant of citizenship to Bangladeshi Hindus on the ground of religion the RSS has gone against the Constitution of India and has proved itself to be an anti-tiol organization as the Constitution of India upholds a Secular and Democratic India,” the State PCC said, and added.
