Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has finally broken his silence on the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill issue.

Sonowal said his government will do everything possible to safeguard the interest of the people of Assam. Sonowal said this in a tweet after meeting editors and senior journalists at his residence in Guwahati this evening.
