GUWAHATI, June 6 - Former Union Law Minister Debabrata Baruah today said that the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill will not be able to hold its ground in the Supreme Court even if it is eventually passed in the Parliament undermining the large-scale protest in the State.

�The Bill is anti-constitutional and clearly violates the Preamble, which describes India as a sovereign, secular and democratic country. The proposed law does not have any relevance, nor does Assam needs any such legislation. If at all the Bill is passed in Parliament, it would not able to hold its ground for too long,� Baruah opined.

The former Union Minister said that the ill-motive behind the proposed enactment of the Bill is to write off the historic Assam Accord, which is the outcome of unmatched sacrifice of the people of State.

Talking to mediapersons here today, Baruah said the AASU leadership, who were part of the Assam agitation and are now part of the Government setup, must voice out their concern in a more assertive manner.

�It is high time that the people of Assam, irrespective of caste, creed and religion united to oppose the Bill,� he opined.

�We have also agreed on 1971 as the base year and that should be continued. We want to resolve the issue and not create a new one,� he added.
