People’s Protection Bill would be rendered useless as Citizenship Bill comes to force: GaikhangamIMPHAL | January 9
Former Deputy Chief Minister and CWC member, Gaikhangam have contended that the Manipur People’s Protection Bill would be rendered “useless” once the Citizenship Amendment Bill comes into effect.
Gaikhangam stated this while reacting to the statement of Chief Minister N Biren Singh who threw his weight on the Manipur People’s Protection Bill 2018, to protect the indigenous people of the state.
He said that the passing of the Citizenship Amendment Bill by the Centre Government in the Lok Sabha as unfortunate for their might have not been more draconian than the Bill.
Branding the Citizenship Bill as “unconstitutional Bill”, Gaikhangam said the BJP had failed to realize detrimental consequences for making regulation based on religious or communal line.
The people of the region have reason to fear if the BJP passed the CAB ignorantly without calculating the detrimental consequences, opined Gaikhangam.
The smaller groups of people settling in the Northeastern region may immediately bear the brunt of CAB but in the long run, the detrimental effect will escalate to the entire, said Gaikhangam.
“BJP should realize that Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) would spell disastrous not only for the Northeast but for the entire nation”, said Gaikhangam.
He claimed that making a law or regulation based on communal or religious line is against any international norms.
Gaikhangam recalled that the Congress has made their stand clear on the CAB by voicing their opposition at different stages.
The Congress party had met the President, Union Home Minister and apprised on the consequences of the CAB.
The Ball is in the court of the BJP whether to save India or break India up into pieces, he said.
He appealed to all political parties in Manipur to join hands cutting across party lines to fight for the future of the region.
