What Modi assured Mahanta

NEW DELHI:Prime Minister Narendra Modi said his government won't do anything that can harm Assam and its people. He assured it to Prafulla Kumar Mahanta during his brief date in New Delhi on Tuesday.

Talking to reporters after  meeting the prime minister, Mahanta said that he tried to convince Modi of the impending adverse impact of the step to amend the Citizenship Act.

Mahanta told Modi that an amendment of the Act would help the illegal settlers in Assam only. "I told him that Assam no longer can shoulder the burden of more immigrants. Need of the hour is the total implementation of the Assam Accord. No option is left," said Mahanta.

He further said," the prime minister gave a patient hearing and told me that his government would never do anything that would harm Assam."
