The entire north-eastern region came to a standstill on Tuesday morning responding to the shutdown call of various students' organizations spearheaded by North East Students' Organization (NESO) against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016.

Hek, who is also the BJP legislature party leader, said the party has also requested the police to deploy security personnel in all its offices across the state to prevent such incident to take place. "The bill may foment more trouble in the days to come because, in the guise of democracy and majoritarianism, the central government has totally forsaken the very sanctity of our survival", Dai said.

The decision to snap the ties followed an AGP delegation's meeting with Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in New Delhi during which he asserted that the government will ensure the passage of the Citizenship Bill in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday.

"The Bill is contrary to the Bharatiya Janata Party's avowed objective to save race, land and hearth".

Bill to be tabled in Lok Sabha today; nude protests in Delhi, Assam. "A high level committee has been appointed to implement this", he said, adding that a separate bill will be brought to grant ST status to Bodo Kacharis living in the hill districts of Assam and Karbis in the plains. It is supported by the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), which withdrew support to the BJP-led government in Assam on Monday, the opposition Congress, the AIUDF, and the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS).

The legislation, which still needs the approval of the upper house, seeks to grant rights to Hindus, Jains, Parsis and several other non-Muslim religious groups who migrated illegally from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Mizoram and Meghalaya governments have opposed the Bill by adopting resolution against it in their respective cabinet meetings.

Large sections of people in Assam and other northeastern states have been protesting against the Bill, saying it will nullify the 1985 Assam Accord under which any foreign national, irrespective of religion, who had entered the state after March 24, 1971, should be deported.

The bill would provide an exemption to these groups from an Indian law which prohibits naturalization for illegal immigrants.
