Tripartite talks on Assam Accord

The Centre is holding a tripartite meeting with Assam Government and All Assam Students Union to discuss the Assam Accord implementation amid the move to amend the Indian Citizenship Act, 1955 that would virtually spoil the spirit of the historic pact reached three decades ago to detect and deport the illegal settlers who came to the state after 1971.

Led by Dr Samujjal Bhattacharya, the five member delegation began the talks at the North Block in New Delhi from 12 noon with Union home minister Rajnath Singh in presence of chief minister Sarbanabda Sonowal.

Detection and deportation of the illegal Bangladeshi settlers is not figuring the talks since the Centre wants to deport only the Muslim immigrants, a move that triggers statewide protest.

Moreover, the Supreme Court is all set to hear a set of petitions from May 11 challenging the cut off date agreed in the Accord signed three decades back.
