At a time when there is an outcry across the state regarding the Citizenship Amendment Bill 2016, the issue failed to get broached in the Cabinet meeting held on 1st June. The regional leaders who proclaimed to introduce the issue in the cabinet stayed mum on the Cabinet.
Atul Bora, state President of Asom Gana Parsishad who swore to raise the issue in the cabinet refrained from doing it .Bora stated that they didn't raise the issue in the pretext that prior to the Cabinet meeting, CM Sarbananda Sonowal had a word with the three cabinet ministers of AGP and assured them with a ray of hope and that such issues needs undergoing certain process for it to get raised.
Talking to Inside NE, Bora desisted from providing any transparent answer when asked about his stillness on the matter in the Cabinet, rather he tried explaining the the words of the CM
So, now it's a matter of concern, the regional party who had been vocal all the way to scrap the Citizenship Amendment Bill has now failed to mention the issue outright. When the government of the neighboring states of Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur has opposed the bill vehemently, why can't AGP formulate such measures? Why is AGP Which rose to power with the onus to safeguard the indigenous people has now failed to back the people? Silaaditya Deb in an Exclusive interview with INSIDE NE clearly three a challenge to AGP to count the number of MPs in the parliament they have to stub the bill. So, has the words of Siladitya Deb somewhere touched the exact cords? Is this the reason of perforation by the AGP? Is it the spell of power and status which has hold them to maintain such a static role?
Time will speak it all or 'Power' maybe., we never know.
