Three MPs of opposition CPI (M) on Friday announced that they will boycott Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s programme in Tripura on Saturday.

“We the 3(three) MPs of Tripura have taken conscious decision to boycott the functions at Agartaia to be attended by the Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi tomorrow on 9th February 2019,” the statement by Jitendra Chaudhary, Shankar Prasad Sutta and Rajya Sabha MP Jharna Das Baidya read.

The statement further said that the proposed Citizenship Amendment Bill would harm the interests of Northeast India and pose a threat to the secular spirit of the country if it is passed in Parliament.

The Bill was conceived against the spirit of the Constitution of India, the joint statement said. The MPs appealed PM Modi and the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government to withdraw the legislation from placing it in the Rajya Sabha to respect sentiments of people from the Northeast.
