They called on Dr Singh and submitted a memorandum urging him to look in to the serious allegations saying some active organizations in these neighboring states are curtailing the rights to liberty, right to earn livelihood and right to move freely to any part of India of poor people belonging to the minority community of Assam.
They say allege that citizenship documents, inner-line permits etc of a large number of minority people from Assam working in the states are being forcibly taken away branding them as Bangladeshi nationals.
They further urged Dr Singh to issue necessary directives to the ministry of home affairs to end this conflict saying these minority citizens from Assam are being harassed. They term it a case of curtailment of fundamental rights. “The state governments are remaining a mute spectator,” they rue in the memorandum.
