In the wake of the peaceful protests turning violent against the Citizenship Amendment Act in the North East, Meghalaya's Chief Minister Conrad Sangma has raised concerns over CAB and how it's causing "problems" in various states.
As a response to the CM's queries, the Union Home Minister Amit Shah, has invited him over for discussing the issue. Their meeting will happen sometime after Christmas.
While addressing a rally in Jharkhand's Giridih, Amit Shah further said that he wants to assure the people of Assam and the other states in the North East that their culture, languages, social identity and political rights are secure and won't be affected by the act.
According to DNA, in the same rally, he mentioned that there was a scope for some changes in the form of "constructive solution" in CAB, which will be discussed with CM Sanga and his cabinet after Christmas. He also mentioned :
They said there is a problem in Meghalaya. I tried to make them understand that there is no issue. Yet, they requested me to change something (in the act). I have asked Sangma ji to come to me when he is free after Christmas and we can think of a constructive a solution for Meghalaya. Nobody has anything to fear.
