Arunachal tribal forum opposes CAB

By The Assam Tribune

ITANAGAR, Feb 8 - Opposing the controversial Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2016 (CAB), a tribal forum in Arunachal Pradesh on Friday demanded that the State be exempted from its purview as it is contrary to the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation Act, 1873.

The Arunachal Indigenous Tribal Forum (AITF), a conglomerate of various community-based organisations of the State, termed the Bill as �anti-tribal, anti-Arunachalee and monstrous� which would �eat up� the indigenous population of the State in the long run. AITF president Bengia Tolum told reporters here.

The All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union, the State�s largest student body, has been demanding their ouster from the State since 1990.

Tolum said that a AITF delegation had held a detailed discussion with Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Thursday and explained to him the overall impact of the Bill in the State with reference to the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation Act 1873. � PTI
