GUWAHATI, Dec 19 - The Assam Sanmilita Mahasangha (Mahasangha) and the pro-talk faction of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) have decried the move of the Union Government to introduce the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in the Parliament with the intention to grant citizenship to the Hindu migrants from Bangladesh as a threat to the democratic polity of the country.

In a joint statement here, the Mahasangha and the NDFB faction have said that this move is virtually a bid to ignore the Supreme Court of the country, which has assigned a constitutional bench to judge a case (68/2016) on the issue of granting citizenship to the Hindu migrants from Bangladesh etc. Petitioners of this case have challenged the ordinance issued by the Union Home Ministry for granting citizenship to the Hindu migrants from Bangladesh and other countries.

But now, the Union Government has been making attempts at placing the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in the Winter Session of the Parliament, which does not bode well for the country�s democratic polity, said the Mahasangha and the NDFB pro-talk faction.
