Assurance is great but you must list out the measures.

A few thoughts:

1. I applaud the CAB. I welcome the persecuted minorities of ABP (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan) to India. Their well-being should be the responsibility of ALL States, and not just the border States. 1/n
2. The Indians of Assam were promised that ALL illegal immigrants would be removed from the State. Let us assume that post-NRC, 1 million illegal Bangladeshi Hindus satisfy the 2014 cut-off of the CAB. They would now become Indian citizens and won't be removed from Assam. 2/n
3. The Assamese were made to think that ALL illegal immigrants - a strain on the State's resources - would be identified and removed. But now 1 million can't be because they are now Indian citizens.

4. IMO, why should Assam bear this economic burden alone? Not fair. 3/n
5. ALL States should pitch in. The share for ensuring well-being of the newly-minted Indian citizens should be smoothly distributed. Therefore, PM @narendramodi, mere assurances are not enough. Let BJP-ruled States take the first step in easing Assam's legitimate concerns. 4/n
6. It is also a fact that illegals now made legal are already settled and working in Assam, so there isn't going to be any 'extra burden' on Assam that the scaremongers are alleging; just that the promise of a 'lighter' Assam without the illegals has been broken. Address it. n/n
