Mizoram CM Zoramthanga calls on PM Modi

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Dec 6: Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a day after the Union Cabinet cleared the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.

The bill seeks to give citizenship to members of non-Muslim minorities from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh facing persecution in their countries.

The prime minister's official website posted pictures of the two leaders.

Northeastern states are opposing the bill as they feel that it will disturb the demographic profile. However, states including Mizoram where inner line permit is required for non-locals, have been kept out of the ambit of the proposed law. - PTI
