Sonowal had made the remark while interacting with the editors of print and electronic media here last evening on the prevailing situation in the state following the recent visit of the Joint Parliamentary Committee on the Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2016.
The move on the part of central government to amend in Lok Sabha the Citizenship Act, 1955 to make illegal migrants belonging to six communities - Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis, and Christians - eligible for Indian citizenship after six years of residence in the country have created strong opposition in Assam.
Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has said he had no reason to continue on his post if he could not protect the interest of the people of the state. "The BJP will have to chose if it wants to be with indigenous people or Bangladeshis", said Sammujjal Bhattacharya, chief advisor to the All Assam Students' Union (AASU), the powerful students' body that led the Assam agitation of the 1980s.
Hundreds of people protested on Saturday in Assam against the Centre's proposed move to grant citizenship rights to persecuted religious minorities from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
"North East is not the dumping ground for illegal Bangladeshis and the Bill is a threat to the identify of our indigenous people", he said while making it clear that the region can not take the load of Bangladeshis beyond 1971 be it Hindu or Muslim Bangladeshis.
The Committee which is on a two-day visit to Shillong to take views and suggestions from the stakeholders on the Bill met eight organisations and two individuals on Thursday.

"It was due to his efforts that saw the IMDT (Illegal Migrants' Determination Tribunal) Act, which made detection of immigrants hard, being struck down (by the Supreme Court)", Patowary said while appealing to the people to have faith on the government. The state has seen violence in the past over the issue of illegal immigrants.
Peter said that the Bill is a conspiracy to wipe out the indigenous peoples of the whole North East region who belong to the Mongoloid stock.
Protests were staged against the Bill in front of the venue where the JPC hearing was held as people feared that it would breach the clauses of the Assam Accord. While nearly all organisations and non-BJP political parties in Assamese-speaking Brahmaputra Valley opposed the bill, the Bengali-speaking Barak Valley supported it.
