The bill has threatened the very existence and identity of the indigenous Assamese and "no right thinking individual who has interest of the people at heart can accept it," he added.
There are many in the BJP who are not supportive of the bill and they should come out of the party to ensure that the identity of the Assamese is protected, Saikia said.
"It is a fact that any right thinking individual and those who care for their land and people cannot remain in the party after the bill has been passed," the LoP said.
Atul Bora, who had joined the BJP from AGP, represents Dispur assembly constituency while Binod Hazarika and Bimal Bora represent Chabua and Tingkhong and the trio had spoken against the bill on separate occasions.
Bora had said that he was opposed to the Citizenship Amendment Bill as it will harm the Assamese, language, culture and completely nullify the Assam Accord, along with hurting the secular fabric of Assamese society.
