Elders’ body supports CAA at all-India level, barring NE
Staff Reporter
 GUWAHATI, Jan 2 - The Guwahati Senior Citizens’ Association (GSCA) has decided to send a memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressing its support to the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) nationally in order to give shelter to persecuted Hindus, Sikhs, Christians and Parsis from the neighbouring Muslim-majority countries.

 The Association stated clearly that while the people of Assam fully supported the rehabilitation of persecuted minorities from the neighbouring Muslim-majority countries, Assam and the northeastern region could ill-afford to give shelter to the people in view of the fact that Assam and the Northeast have already shouldered the burden of over 12 million persecuted people from these countries.

The Association will submit a memorandum to the Chief Minister of Assam tomorrow for onward transmission to the Prime Minister.
