100 Word Edit: CAB clears Parliament Test; NE Hurdle Remains
After Lok Sabha, the Citizen Amendment Bill has cleared the Rajya Sabha test too without any difficulties, thanks to effective floor management. The Bill is all set to become a law following the Presidential assent.
The Bill may be challenged in the court of law over constitutional validity. But the government sounds confident. The major hurdle for Modi-Shah remains in North East, especially Assam.
The North East continues to be on the edge with massive protests, violence and arson continuing unabated. Curfew imposed; Army called in. It would be a big test for Modi-Shah to pass the North East hurdle.
