    I'll tell you how the BJP will provide citizenship to illegal immigrants:
    Government: Have you been religiously persecuted?
    Immigrant: Yes.
    Government: Are you Hindu, or a person practising any Indic religion, or Christianity (who are negligible)?
    Immigrant: Yes.
    Government: Okay, you are now a Citizen! Congratulations! You'll naturalize in 5 years!

    Many of BJP bills are designed keeping vote benefiting , cleverly apealing the sentiments of majority religion , not on wisdom of benefiting all country men . So often it backfires as country men have experiencing , as demonization, GST, triple talaq and article 370 etc .

    The people who first need to be booted out from north east are illegal immigrants from China and Burma.
    Axoms are ethnic Chinese and they are as indigenous in India as the British mughals and Afghans.
    This mess has arisen not only in Assam but entire north east as Congress has suppressed the history of North East and has been trying to pass off ethnic Chinese and Burmese as indigenous people of North East in order to buy peace. This has further emboldened these people who hate India and Indians from the bottom of their heart. No wonder they have been taking help from China and Burma to separate from India while India not only gives them separate states which pay no taxes and budget is footed by central government but also stops any Indian from settling there.
    Indians from "mainland" now need to take "permits" to visit these places occupied by Chinese and Burmese origin people.
    We need to know the real history of North East to know why it has never been integrated with India.
    North East used to be known as Kamrupa where the natives have been the Bengalis.
    Kamrupa was invaded by Chinese Axoms aka Ahoms from Yunnan in 1200 A.D. and renamed to Assam aka Axom.
    Few centuries later Assam itself was invaded by Burmese and made a part of Burma.
    Burma was invaded by the British and made a part of British India that's how undivided Assam aka Kamrupa returned back to India.
    Later on when British separated Burma from India, they retained Burmese occupied India with India but now these places have majority population of people who are of Chinese or Burmese origin.
    If these Chinese or Burmese origin people are really the indigenous people of these lands, then India is illegally occupying parts of China and Burma.
    On the other hand if these people are themselves illegal immigrants from China and Burma then the Government in New Delhi needs to explain how it has not only given separate states to these people but also how it is calling Chinese and Burmese people as indigenous tribals in ancestral lands of Bengalis??
    The Assam accord is an agreement between a half Kashmiri half Parsi whose mother was peppered with bullets by the Sikhs and who himself was blown to bits by the Tamils and ethnic Chinese aka Ahoms to determine "Indian citizenship" of Bengalis in ancestral lands of Bengalis.
    This becomes even more bizarre, when a rape accused CJI who is himself an ethnic Chinese whose ancestors entered India illegally forces enforcement of this illegal accord after 35 years of its signing.
    Such foolish and stupid moves will reopen old tensions and rivalries between Bengalis the real natives of North East and those who like the British came to these lands as foreign invaders from China and Burma.
    The British have left but India was invaded and occupied by other groups of foreigners before British occupied India.
    These people are still living in India and harbour hostility towards India and Indians like their ancestors.
