CM leaves for Delhi
SHILLONG: Chief Minister Conrad Sangma on Sunday left for New Delhi to seek support from various political parties in opposing the citizenship bill, which is likely to be tabled in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday.
Sangma will meet leaders of political parties who had promised their support.
Sangma said the national general body meeting of NPP had on Saturday resolved to snap ties with the BJP-led NDA, if the bill is tabled in the Rajya Sabha.
“I have impressed upon the central government about the northeast’s people opposing the bill. The party cannot go against the wishes of the people. Moreover, the citizenship bill, once it becomes law, will change the demography of the region and ethnic communities in the region will be reduced to a minority,” Sangma said.
