Northeast MPs seek region be exempt from Citizenship Bill

Twelve parliamentarians from eight northeastern states on Friday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking to exempt the region from the proposed Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2019. The letter comes on the eve of the consultative meeting on the bill, which seeks to remove hurdles in the way of eligible migrants from six minority groups from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan from getting Indian citizenship, between Home Minister Amit Shah with Chief Ministers of the northeastern states and leaders of various NGOs from the region in New Delhi.
