“So, in continuation of this Observation of this Black Day, the NESO has decided that there will be a display of black flags and black banners in all the important places of all the seven states,” he said.

He said on December 11, 2019, “despite the relentless opposition of the indigenous peoples of the North East against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2019, the Government of India did not pay heed and it finally through the Rajya Sabha passed the draconian law which is known as Citizenship (Amendment) Act 2019.”

“This observation is to give a message to the Government of India that we are against this Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019, and also at the same time, to remind our people and our posterior of yet another political injustice that the Government of India perpetrated on the indigenous peoples of the North East,” Jyrwa said.

Meanwhile, NESO also called upon all the people of the North East to support this observation,  and at the same time, to keep on fighting for the “just cause of our God-given right.”
