The TMC protest came a day after Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma termed illegal migrants as 'Jinnahs,' and added that a high-level committee has been set up by the Union Cabinet to implement the Clause 6 of the 1985 Assam Accord.
The clause states that "Constitutional, legislative and administrative safeguards, as may be appropriate, shall be provided to protect, preserve and promote the cultural, social, linguistic identity and heritage of the Assamese people."
"NRC will weed out a lot of 'Jinnahs' living in the state," Sarma had told media. (ANI)
