ITANAGAR, Dec 11: The North East Students’ Organisation (NESO), the umbrella organisation of all the major students’ unions of the North East, including the All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU), today while condemning the passage of the contentious CAB in the Rajya Sabha has termed it as a sinister ploy of the Union Government to reduce the indigenous people of the North East to a minority in their own land.
In a press release issued late on Wednesday evening, NESO has said that the illegal infiltrators from Bangladesh who belong to the religious denominations of Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Parsis, Buddhist or Christians who have illegally entered North East will now get Indian citizenship easily and it will further encourage more infiltration from Bangladesh with which North East shares a long border of about 1,741 km. The approval of this contentious bill by the Union Cabinet on December 4,  its passage in the Lok Sabha on December 9 and the final passage in Rajya Sabha on December 11 is spelling a bleak future for the indigenous people of the region and it is yet another political injustice perpetrated by the Government of India on the microscopic indigenous communities of the region, its release read. 
It has termed December 11, the day CAB finally crossed the Rajya Sabha hurdle as a “Black Day” for the indigenous people of the North East.  NESO PR
