CM Himanta’s comments come after protests across Assam, in which opposition parties strongly criticized the BJP government at the Center for implementing the CAA. ‘I am a son of Assam and if even a single person who did not apply for NRC gets citizenship, I will be the first to resign from my post,’ the Chief Minister said during an event in Sivasagar.

Lakhs of people will enter the state

Through the Citizenship Amendment Act, refugees belonging to persecuted Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Christian, and Parsi religions from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan will be given Indian citizenship. According to the law, only those who came and settled in India before December 31, 2014, will be given citizenship.
