Manipur Education Minister, Thokchom Radheshyam Singh reacted over Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019 and said that Congress party is doing politics over it. "There should be no agitation against it but people are doing lot of politics, particularly Congress. They have no issues. In Manipur or anywhere else, there's no effect of the bill, but people are being instigated," he further added. He also said, "Already, we have been informed that there is a protection clause for the state of Manipur. The clause has been assured by Home Minister, so we need not worry. It is for betterment of citizens."
