Citizenship bill will be passed in Nov: Himanta
Not one Hindu will have to leave: RSS
Silchar: Assam minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said here on Monday that the Centre would reintroduce the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in Parliament in November and “make sure it is passed”. “Our aim is to ensure security for Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Christians and Parsis. Till these people are secure, there will be no NRC across the country,” Sarma said while addressing BJP workers in Karimganj and Silchar. “Our government will first bring the amendment bill and then the NRC will be introduced across the country.”

He said that Hindus, who came to India after being tortured and persecuted in other nations, will stay,” an RSS leader said.
