The Joint Parliamentary Committee on Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 is likely to visit Assam to assess the ground reality, even as the organisations connected with the Assam agitation strongly opposed the move to tinker with the Assam Accord and the cutoff date insisting on detection and deportation of illegal migrants irrespective of their religion.
At least, 12 organisations on Tuesday made submissions before the JPC and these included the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU), Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), Assam Andolan Sangrami Mancha, Barak Valley Bangla Sahitya Sanmilan and Joint Action Bengali Committee, besides a few others from Tripura and West Bengal.
The JPC today conveyed that they are planning to tour Assam soon. Significantly, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Tuesday morning met JPC chairman Satyapal Singh and invited him to visit Assam.
