More dissent in BJP: Another MLA joins the camp

Yet another BJP MLA has spoken to his mind opposing the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 on Wednesday. That too the state party leadership have asked Rhituparna Baruah not to speak out before media.

Hours after the Lahowal MLA received the diktat, his Bihpuria counterpart Devanand Hazarika openly said that there was a little ground to support the Bill in question.

Talking to media, he said he won't go against the wish of his people and that those detected as immigrant in NRC should be pushed back.

Hazarika is the fifth one BJP MLAs who stood up against the Bill. Earlier, Atul Bora, Hitendra Nath Goswami, Padma Hazarika and Rhituparna Baruah have spoken up against the Bill.
