Need clarity in anti-immigration steps

Amid an aroused controversy over the move to roll out red carpet for the Hindu immigrants by amending the Citizenship Act, 1955, the Prabajan Virodhi Manch demands a clear cut mechanism to save the indigenous people from being minority in the own abode by 2040.

In a statement issued in Guwahati on Friday, convener of the anti-immigrant organization, Upamanyu Hazarika said the set of policies which are still in force would not help Assam and it's people, in any way, to detect and deport the immigrants.

He further thanked BPF MP B Daimary, ABSU president Pramod Bodo who in their statements strongly advocated early detection and deportation of the immigrants to safeguard the rights and identity of the Bodo people.

Hazarika observed that for the first time a ruling coalition partner has shown the courage to demand the deportation of the immigrants which is possible only with a clear cut policy of the government.
