Sudip Bandyopadhyay’s intervention during the introduction of The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016
Madam, I think there is no scope of confusion regarding this Bill. Most Opposition parties have jointly raised their voices. I agree with the proposal of Bhartruhari Mahtab, seconded by Jyotiraditya Scindia.
We also agree that this Bill should go to the Joint Committee. We can make this Bill better after holding discussions. Let the committee be constituted in a time-bound manner. Let further discussions be held in the Committee.
