Safeguarding interests of N-E people BJP govts priority: Modi

Dhanbad: Allaying fears of the people of the North-East over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday asserted his government would safeguard their language, culture and identity "under all circumstances".

Addressing a poll rally here, he said: "I want to assure every state, every tribal society in the North-East and the eastern part of the country including Assam that preserving their culture is our priority. Today, I appeal to my brothers and sisters of Assam to have faith in Modi. No harm will come to them and their tradition, culture and way of living," he asserted. Countering the Prime Minister's reassurances, Congress tweeted: "Our brothers & sisters in Assam cannot read your 'reassuring' message Modiji, in case you've forgotten, their internet has been cut off."
