Citizenship Bill a �vote investment� of BJP: UDP

By Staff correspondent

SHILLONG, Jan 28 - The United Democratic Party (UDP) today opposed the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016, saying that it was just a �vote investment� of the BJP.

The party said it would oppose the Bill and also send a representative for tomorrow�s meeting, convened by the Asom Gana Parishad together with the National People�s Party at Guwahati.

�The issue of citizenship should be dealt within the ambit of the Illegal Migrants Act and the Citizens Act,� UDP working president Bindoo Lanong said, adding that the implementation of the Citizenship Bill would threaten national security.

�We hope that some decision would be taken by the political parties at the meeting in Guwahati,� Lanong said.

Asked if the UDP was contemplating coming out of the North East Democratic Alliance, the party said NEDA was only a forum to discuss developmental issues and not a political forum.
