    Committed To Constitutional Safeguards Of Assamese People: Modi On CAB

    No one can take away your rights, unique identity and beautiful culture: Modi

    A day after the controversial Citizenship Amendment Bill was passed in the Rajya Sabha amid widespread protests and oppositions, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressing the concerns of the people said that the government is committed to constitutional safeguards of the rights of the Assamese people.

    He said, “The Central Government and I are totally committed to constitutionally safeguard the political, linguistic, cultural and land rights of the Assamese people as per the spirit of Clause 6.”

    On December 11th, 2019 the streets of Assam turned into a battleground with massive and violent protests against the Bill. In Guwahati, tens of thousands of students took to the streets, broke police barricades, and lit bonfires on the roads in protest against CAB. At 6:15 pm, curfew was imposed for an indefinite period in Guwahati. At 7 pm, mobile internet services of all carriers across 10 of the 33 districts in Assam were suspended for 24 hours.

    It may be mentioned that the protesters are up in arms against the Modi government as anti-CAB slogans continued to rent the air.

    PM Modi asked the people not to worry about the passing of CAB and that ‘no one can take away the rights, identity, and culture.’

    “I want to assure my brothers and sisters of Assam that they have nothing to worry after the passing of CAB. I want to assure them- no one can take away your rights, unique identity and beautiful culture. It will continue to flourish and grow.” He wrote on his Twitter.

    Meanwhile, security deployments have increased in many places including Guwahati following the violent protests.  Commando Battalions have also been deployed with fire tenders. Siren of ambulances kept blaring throughout the night.
