NEW DELHI, Nov 27 - The Union Cabinet is likely to take up the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill next week ahead of tabling it in the Parliament.
Wednesday�s Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not take up the Bill and instead took up several other Bills relating to finance and foreign relations.
Meanwhile, Assam Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Finance and PWD Himanta Biswa Sarma called on Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah at their Parliament House offices today. However, he could not be contacted for his comments.
The Union Cabinet cleared a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between India and Myanmar on bilateral cooperation for prevention of trafficking in persons and rescue, recovery, repatriation and reintegration of victims of trafficking.
Official sources said the MoU also envisages to strengthen immigration and border control cooperation and implementation of strategies with relevant ministries and organisations to prevent trafficking in persons. Sources said human trafficking has national as well as international ramifications.
