Congress ill-treated minorities who came from Pakistan, Bangladesh

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Thursday while addressing a rally in Assam’s Silchar that Bharatiya Janata Party was committed to amending of Citizenship Act.

He accused the Congress party for ill-treating Bangladeshi and Pakistani religious minorities who came due to religious persecution in their countries.

Modi added that Congress always encouraged infiltration in India with the intention of expanding its vote bank.

He said Congress made Hindus and Shikhs who came from Pakistan in 1947 when India was divided stateless and created doubt on their identity.

The PM further said that if BJP is voted to power the government would bring Citizenship Amendment Bill and secure the identities of Assamese brothers and sisters.

Accusing further he said Congress could have solved the problems of Assam after the 1971 war.

About Clause 6 of the Assam Accord he said, “We are working to give the scheduled tribe status to six communities. A Bill was brought in the Rajya Sabha for this by our government. But we will also ensure that the rights and privileges of the existing tribes are protected. This is my promise.”
