Mahanta-led delegation to meet MPs in Delhi

By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, May 24 - The Asom Andolan Sangrami Mancha, under the leadership of former Chief Minister Prafulla Kumar Mahanta, has decided to meet Members of Parliament (MPs) from different political parties in New Delhi to garner support against the proposed Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.

At a press conference here today, Mahanta informed that a delegation of the Mancha would visit New Delhi before the July session of the Parliament.

�We are in touch with some political parties in this regard. We will try and persuade them to oppose the Bill on the floor of the Parliament,� Mahanta said.

The two-time Chief Minister also informed that the Mancha would take out a procession from Ganesh Udyan (near Ganesh Mandir) to the Raj Bhawan on May 30 where a memorandum would be handed over to the Assam Governor.

�The proposed Bill is unconstitutional and stands in complete violation of the Assam Accord and must be withdrawn. We would apprise the Governor of it and urge him to take necessary steps for withdrawal of the proposed Bill,� Mahanta said.

He said that the proposed Bill is a threat to the identity of the indigenous people and its culture and tradition.

Mahanta further urged the Centre and the State government to take up the issue with the Bangladesh government.
