  1. Citizenship(Amendment) Bill 2016 is a matter of concern to the people of Assam & North East.
    But this bill can be implemented with some changes after discussing with all other states, in the following manner:
    1) Those who migrated to Assam before 25 March 1971 & fulfils criteria of this bill may remain in Assam,
    abiding by agreement made with ASSU long back.
    Remaining people covered by this bill may be be deportrd to other parts of India so as to safeguard interests of
    the people of Assam & NE states. It should be a concern for everyone , all over India.
    2) Some people argue that this bill violates Article 14 of the Constitution of India which guarantees right to equality.
    But untill citizenship is awarded , they all should be declared as foreigners first. Those foreigner are not bound by
    constitution of india until they are awarded citizenship.
