SILCHAR, Sept 19 - The Citizens� Rights Preservation Committee (CRPC), Assam, has appreciated the Union Government for taking a positive stand to resolve the citizenship status of the partition victims by issuing the gazette notification regarding the Passport (entry into India) Act, 1920, and the Foreigners� Act, 1946.
In a press release, the CRPC central committee functionaries urged the Government to bring all necessary amendments in the law by passing a Bill in the Parliament, to give safety and security to the partition victims and provide them citizenship status to bury the problem permanently before the 2016 elections.
Bidhayak Das Purakystha, general secretary of the committee, said that at a time when the Central Government has taken this bold step, some organisations and political parties are dishing out fabricated statistics and self-made historical facts to create unrest and chaos in the State.
�Some organisations, with their vested interests, are desperately trying to reorganise and trigger various movements to stop growth of the State on a par with the rest of the country. But the people of Assam are politically conscious and it will not be easy to befool them any longer,� Das Purakystha said.
�Assam can only prosper if the people join hands with collective efforts, irrespective of caste, creed, community, language, in its march towards advancement and development, the CRPC stated in the release.
