But, even if it some how managed to get passed in the Parliament, when violent protests started across the country against this divisive amendment, especially in all the high places in the country.

Jitendra Chowdhury, the then president of Ganamukti Parishad and current leader of opposition in the state and secretary of CPI(M) also filed a case from Tripura state" it said.

"Almost all the secular and democratic political parties and social organizations of the country including the CPI(M) have been opposing this amendment as it is against the basic spirit of the Constitution" it said.

CPIM also mentioned that "after remaining silent for the last 14 years, on the eve of the 18th Lok Sabha elections, the Modi government hastily announced the rules for granting citizenship under this amendment on March 11, 2024, with the ulterior motive of playing the religious card and benefiting from its votes. It is learned that the Tripura government has also initiated a committee of district magistrates to take action in accordance with the rules while the electoral conduct rules are in force." 

"The CPI(M) Tripura state secretariat Committee has demanded a stay on the BJP-led state and central government's move, or it will take to the streets to oppose it through democratic means. The explanation given by the ruling party and the government that this law will not be effective in the 6th schedule ADC areas of North Eastern region has no substance" party mentioned in a statement.

"Because the overall population growth in the region is bound to have multi-faceted and far-reaching effects on the entire ADC and non-ADC areas in terms of economic, social, cultural, employment and land. Already, women, men and children are being arrested illegally infiltrating almost every day at various borders, bus and railway stations and airports in Tripura state. This move by the government will further encourage it. So this move is strongly opposed" said CPIM.
