The CM also informed that the Indo-Bangladesh border will be sealed by December this year to stop any infiltrations by illegal foreigners, i.e. Bangladeshis.
Addressing a press meet, Sonowal said “”Our government came to power on two promises, corruption-free Assam and illegal foreigner-free Assam. We are committed to fulfilling the promises,”
He further added that “people need not worry about the Citizenship Bill. The government won’t go against the will and sentiment of people of Assam.”
