📰 ‘Centre won’t dilute Article 371’

NDA govt. committed to preserving cultures, traditions of northeast, says Shah

•Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday allayed fears in the northeast that Article 371 would meet the same fate as Article 370. He was speaking at a public meeting at the 34th Statehood Day celebrations in Itanagar.

•His visit was marked by protests in Arunachal Pradesh and China, which claims the State as part of southern Tibet. Students of the Rajiv Gandhi University led the protest related to the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 (CAA) at Mithun Gate, less than a kilometre from Indira Gandhi Park where the Statehood Day programme was held.

‘Misinformation spread’

•“Misinformation was spread after the abrogation of Article 370 that Article 371 will also be scrapped… It will never happen and nobody can do it,” Mr. Shah said, asserting that the NDA government was committed to preserving and protecting the unique cultures and traditions of the northeast inhabited by various ethnic groups.

•While Article 370 had special provisions for Jammu and Kashmir, Articles 371-A to 371-J have certain provisions for Nagaland, Assam, Manipur, Andhra Pradesh, Sikkim, Mizoram and Arunachal Pradesh besides Maharashtra, Gujarat, Goa and Karnataka.

•Mr. Shah said the northeast was only geographically connected to the rest of India till 2014, when the NDA government began to integrate the region emotionally. “The region used to get importance earlier only on political grounds but Prime Minister Narendra Modi has changed the trend,” Mr. Shah added.

•“The Modi government wants the entire northeast to be free of militancy, inter-State boundary conflicts, law and order, drug menace and other problems. When we seek votes in 2024, the northeast will have been free from all problems,” the Home Minister said.
