Governor’s intervention sought in CAB issue

ITANAGAR, Jan 28: Alleging that the state government was not taking any effective steps against the citizenship amendment bill (CAB), the All Arunachal Pradesh Border Students’ Union in a representation to the governor on Monday sought his intervention in the issue.
The union said in its representation that the introduction (and subsequent passing) of the bill in the Lok Sabha has caused anxiety among the indigenous people of the eastern part of Arunachal Pradesh.
“Our state has been carrying the burden of migrants since the last couple of decades and is too small in comparison to other states. There are genuine apprehensions that if the bill is made into an act, the indigenous people of our state would be reduced to minority in their own home state.
Our state is overburdened and can no longer sustain any more burden of influx of people from any foreign soil. The indigenous people are almost in minority status and passing of the bill would surely reduce them to minority. Hence, the said bill needs to be withdrawn at once,” it said.
It requested the governor to initiate step to pass a resolution to oppose the controversial bill.
