    Mohan Bhagwat To Start Three-Day Assam Tour From Sept 27

    The RSS has been pushing to bring the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill

    Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat is scheduled to visit Assam for a three-day tour from September 27th, 2019. This will be his first visit to Assam since the final National Register of Citizens (NRC) list to identify illegal immigrants in Assam was released.  

    According to sources, he will discuss several issues, including the present status of the organisation and outreach programmes, with Sangh Pracharaks here. Sources said Bhagwat, scheduled to leave on September 29th, 2019, will also discuss the present social and political situations in the state.

    Bhagwat had earlier said that no Hindu will be expelled from the country even if the name is missing from the NRC.

    Bhagwat will take part in the RSS Assam chapter three-day meet at the Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalaya, Ramnagar Silchar. It may be mentioned that the RSS has also been pushing to bring the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.  

    If this Bill is passed in Parliament, illegal migrants from minority communities like Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi or Christian coming from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan will then be eligible for Indian citizenship, excluding people from the Muslim community. The Bill has faced massive protests in Assam and across the Northeastern region.
