Sonowal meeting Rajnath

Caught in a deep dilemma over the citizenship amendment controversy Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal is hunkering down with Rajnath Singh in New Delhi on Monday.
Sonowal, who has arrived in the capital is holding talks with the Union home minister at the latter’s official residence to discuss the controversy over the move to amend the citizenship Act where the Hindu refugees from the neighbouring countries would get the citizenship status.
Since the controversy is directly linked to the ongoing process to update the NRC, the issue is also expected to figure in the discussion.
Further, the Chief Minister is expected to apprise the party leadership of the political scene hardly a month before the Lok Sabha by polls in Lakhimpur an assembly polls in Baithalangsu slated for November 19.
