The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) on Wednesday staged a state-wide protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
Along with CAA, the agitating members also demanded for the scrapping of the draft Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).
AASU members in Nalbari observed ‘Manab Shringkhal’ programme and they shouted slogans against the CAA and EIA.
They further alleged that the Centre and the state government took undue advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic situation and took some hasty decisions regarding CAA and EIA.
In Duliajan and Naharkatia, the AASU members took part in a 2-hour sit-in demonstration against CAA.
They also lashed out at the BJP government in the state and alleged it of playing with the emotions of the people of the state.
