After 'Jinnah' comment, Himanta says Hindus will be minority in Assam if Citizenship Bill not passed

Tuesday, January 08, 2019

Guwahati: A day after stoking controversy with his "Jinnah's legacy" comment, Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma yesterday said Hindus in the state will become minority within five years if the Citizenship Bill is not passed.

The senior BJP leader stood by his "Jinnah's legacy" remark and said those who are protesting against him do not know the history of Assam and its formation during the partition of India. "I strongly believe that if this Bill is not passed, then Hindus in Assam will become minority in just next five years. That will be advantageous to those elements who want Assam to be another Kashmir and a part of the uncertain phase there," Sarma told PTI.
