More than 190 organisations submitted a memorandum in South Assam’s Barak Valley to the Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) supporting the proposed bill.

Assamese-majority Brahmaputra Valley on Monday registered a strong opposition to the proposed amendment during the first day of the five-days long visit of JPC and Bengali-dominated Barak Valley. On the other hand, in South Assam’s Barak Valley, a majority of the organisations, the stakeholders and individuals came out in support of the bill on Tuesday, said a report by The Asian Age.
