Northeast hails lapse of Citizenship Bill

The Centre’s failure in tabling the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday triggered euphoria across the North-Eastern states. As soon as the news of the lapsing of the Bill came in, people across Assam and the neighbouring States took to the streets bursting firecrackers, singing, dancing and organising victory rallies. Manipur Chief Minister Nongthombam Biren Singh, thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah for not tabling the Bill and opting for a “consensus-driven approach”.
