She also said that they would organise a public meeting in front of the BJP office to explain the people why they are launching this campaign against the amendment bill.

Maintaining that the Bill will have an adverse impact on the future generation, she  added that the decision of the BJP led NDA Government to bulldoze in passing the amendment bill is a clear reflection that they were not bothered about the feelings and sentiments of the people of the Northeastern region.
