Shillong: The co-ordination committee of the BJP-backed Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government on Friday reiterated its opposition to the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019, which will be introduced in the parliament on December 11. “We are not happy because we had made our stand clear to the Central government to exempt Meghalaya from the Bill. But according to the draft Bill, it is found to be applicable in some places that are outside the scheduled areas of the state,” Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong told journalists. “If the Bill can be exempted in 96 percent areas of the state, why not exempt the whole state from the applicability of the Bill,” the Deputy Chief Minister asked.
