CAB Protest: Assam Chief Minister Sarbananada Sonowal on Thursday appealed to all sections of people of Assam to maintain peace and tranquility. He said, “It’s our cultural, social and spiritual tradition. I have firm belief that people of Assam, as usual, will maintain peace for all time to come.”

The Citizenship Amendment Bill 2019 which was passed in both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha led the protests in Assam. Assam CM said that “A section of people is trying to aggravate the situation by spreading misinformation and misleading people by saying that 10-15 million people are going to take citizenship in Assam. It’s false propaganda.”

He added that “I assure that PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah have very categorically stated that the centre is committed to implement the Clause 6 of Assam Accord in letter and spirit to ensure the constitutional safeguards to the people of Assam politically, culturally.”

Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in a tweet, “I want to assure my brothers and sisters of Assam that they have nothing to worry after the passing of Citizenship Amendment Bill 2019. I want to assure them-no one can take away your rights, unique identity and beautiful culture. It will continue to flourish and grow.”
