Wednesday,11 Dec 2019
New Delhi: The Northeast erupted in outrage as the BJP-led central government gets ready to table the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday. The legislation will fast-track citizenship claims from Muslim-majority Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan from persecuted minorities. Northeast people are afraid that large numbers of Bangladeshi Hindu migrants, who they say are intruders, will swamp their homeland.
