The two apex students’ bodies in Assam – All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) and Assam Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad (AJYCP), are all set to launch fresh anti-CAA protests ahead of Assembly elections in the State.
The AASU will hold statewide demonstrations against the CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act) on March 24.
On the other hand, the AJYCP has announced that it will protest against the Centre’s plans of implementing CAA on March 25 and April 3.
The AJYCP will demonstrate against the CAA across the State on March 25 and April 3.
“We will protest against the CAA across Assam on March 25 and April 3,” AJYCP General Secretary Palash Changmai.
Slamming the BJP-led Central Government and State Government in Assam, AJYCP said that it will fight against the controversial CAA tooth and nail.
“We will never allow the CAA get implemented in Assam, come whatmay,” said AJYCP General Secretary Palash Changmai.
Notably, AJYCP’s anti-CAA protest on March 25 will be held just 2 days before the first phase of Assam Assembly elections.
First phase of Assam Assembly elections would be held on March 27.
The BJP, on the other hand, seems to be adamant on implementation of CAA.
Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal without any hesitation and not keeping in heart the anti-CAA sentiments of Assamese people said that CAA will be implemented.
“CAA is a central act and it will be implemented,” said CM Sarbananda Sonowal.
Not only Sarbananda Sonowal, BJP National President JP Nadda also asserted that CAA without doubt will be implemented.
“CAA will be implemented,” said JP Nadda while speaking to the media during the release of BJP’s manifesto for Assam elections on Tuesday in Guwahati.
Earlier on March 20, the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) launched fresh protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in Assam. The protesters had raised slogans against the BJP-led government at the Centre and state to scrap the CAA and to implement Clause 6 of Assam Accord.
