The total success of the Bandh show that the entire North East is united:NESO

Guwahati, Dec 10:  The North East Students’ Organisation (NESO), comprising of the Khasi Students’ Union , All Assam Students’ Union , Mizo Zirlai Pawl , Twipra Students’ Federation, All Manipur Students’ Union , Garo Students’ Union , All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union  and Naga Students’ Federation, representing eight major students’ movements of the seven North Eastern States would like to express its sincere thanks to the people of the North Eastern states for their kind co-operation in making the North East Bandh a total success

The NESO also to all the constituent organizations of NESO for effectively implementing the bandh on the ground and also the sit in protest in front of the Raj Bhavan in Nagaland. Even though this Bandh may have caused inconvenience but for the purpose of registering our strong opposition to the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2019, we have no other alternative but to resort to this form of agitation and also to show the unity of the people of North East.

In spite of the wide protest in North East, the Government of India passed this Contentious Bill in the Lok Sabha which only goes to show that the Government of India has no regard for the Indigenous peoples of the North East but rather this move is intentionally done to reduce the Indigenous Peoples of the North East to a Minority in our own land.

The total success of the Bandh only goes to show that the entire North East is united in spite of the Government trying to implement the divide and rule policy and the Government of India should take this as a very clear message that the North East does not accept the imposition of CAB and this will further alienate the peoples of the North East.

NESO will not be quiet but we will keep on following up on this very vital issue and will take appropriate decisions with full faith that we will continue to have your unstinted support so as to protect our distinct identity and our future generations. Siad Mr Samuel B Jyrwa Chairman NESO in the press statement issued today.
