BJP partner threatens to quit alliance in Assam over NRC

Firstpost from Patna

Assam agriculture minister and Asom Gana Parishad president Atul Bora on Saturday warned that his party will break its alliance with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the state if the Centre passes the Citizenship Amendment Bill 2016, reports Firstpost from Patna. "Currently, we (Asom Gana Parishad) are a part of the BJP-led Assam govt. If Centre passes the citizenship bill in Parliament then we will break our alliance with the state government," he told ANI.

The citizenship bill, which was introduced in the Lok Sabha in July 2016, seeks to amend the Citizenship Act, 1955, to give citizenship by naturalisation to persecuted minorities from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan belonging to the Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi and Christian communities who came to India before 31 December, 2014.

Making the stand of the Government clear on the issue of illegal immigrants, BJP president Amit Shah on 21 September said, "After 2019, we won't allow even a single infiltrator in India.
