Janta Dal (United ) today reiterated  that it will oppose the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016, when it is placed in the Rajya Sabha , arguing that the proposed legislation is detrimental to the identity of Assam in particular and the northeast in general.

It was decided in party's national office bearer meeting in Patna under chairmanship of Nitish Kumar.

JD(U) national general secretary K C Tyagi said that his party is firm on its stand against the bill and is in solidarity with all organisations in the state which are opposing the bill.

“We will oppose the bill when it comes to the Rajya Sabha because we think the proposed legislation will do no good to the identity and culture of Assam as well as of the northeast.
