AIZAWL, Jan 16 - People�s Representation for Identity and Status of Mizoram (PRISM) on Wednesday asked Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga to call an all-party meeting over Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 (CAB).

In a letter addressed to the Chief Minister, PRISM general secretary, Lalrinzuala Chawngthu said the CAB has been strongly opposed by the people of Mizoram and all political parties alike. The letter also said that all political parties and civil society organisations have expressed their opposition and protested against the passage of the Bill.

�We feel the necessity of convening an all-party meeting to think over collective effort to intensify opposition and protest against the Bill,� the PRISM letter said.

On January 10, the Mizoram Cabinet had expressed its disappointment for the CAB being passed in the Lok Sabha. The Cabinet had also resolved that the Mizoram Government would take all necessary measures to have the Bill rejected by the Rajya Sabha.

Zoramthanga had earlier said that the Bill was dangerous and harmful for Mizoram, where there are large numbers of �foreigners� from Bangladesh. The Chief Minister had also said he would call a party meeting after he returns from New Delhi to decide future course of action on whether or not to pull out of the BJP-led North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA).

The MNF is a part of the NEDA and an ally of the BJP- led NDA Government at the Centre.
