Taking part the cultural protests organised against Citizenship (Amendment) Act or CAA in Guwahati on Sunday, AASU president Dipankar Nath hinted of floating a political party.

Nath, lashing out the AGP, BJP, and Congress said, “Every party has betrayed us. People are telling that we are holding protests but are there any alternatives?

When he asked what should be done, actor-singer Zubeen Garg quipped and said, “We will form our own party.”

The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) president further said that the students’ body will remain apolitical, but it will not shy away to venture into politics.

“We will remain apolitical. But if the situation demands, we will venture into politics as well where the people’s participation will be primary,” Nath said.

Over 15000 people participated in the cultural protests called by the artiste fraternity of Assam against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.

Apart from Zubeen Garg, prominent actors from the Assamese film and music industry like Barsha Rani Bishaya, Jatin Bora, Ravi Sarma, Chetana Das, Manas Robin and others participated in it.

Protests against CAA have intensified across the state with people from all walks of life coming out against it.

In the anti-CAA protests, so far 5 people have lost their lives in Assam.
