Pramila Rani Brahma, minister of Social welfare and soil conversation clearly stated that Atul Bora, President of Asom Gana Parishad did raise the matter of Citizenship Amendment Bill 2016. The statement which made by Chandramohan Patwary soon after the Cabinet meeting that the matter was not broached in the Cabinet irked the people of Assam. However the allegations were scrapped by Atul Bora. The situation was then laid in an ambiguous state. However Pramila Rani Brahma too repudiated the allegation and made her point firm.She stated that even though the matter wasn't included in the agenda, it should have found space in it considering the gravity of the matter.
Thus it will be interesting to see what such contradictory statements might lead to. The 2019 elections might decide the fate of the parties.
As they say the ballot is stronger than the bullet
