  2. 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 concerned, in the following manner:
    1) Those who migrated to Assam before 25 March 1971 & fulfils criteria of this bill & Assam Accord may remain in Assam,
    abiding by agreement made with ASSU long back.
    Part/Remaining people covered by this bill may be be deported 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 until 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.
