The activists of Kalaiagon Anchalik AJYCP vented their anger by burning the effigy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding withdrawal of the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016, at Kalaigaon town in Udalguri district of Assam on Saturday.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remark that the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016 would be passed in the Parliament soon has stirred up a hornet’s nest in state with different organisations taking up massive agitational programmes across the state.
Denouncing Prime Minister Modi’s remark on the Bill, President Kalaigaon Anchalik Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP), Deepjyoti Sarma strongly condemned the comment and exhorted the people to come out in large numbers against the controversial bill.
He further said, “The indigenous people of Assamese will fight against the bill till the last drops of our blood.”
It is pertinent to mention here that addressing a rally at Ramnagar in Silchar on Friday, Prime Minister Modi said that he was hopeful that the Citizenship Bill would be passed by Parliament very soon.
Modi while launching the BJP’s election campaign for the Northeast in Silchar, described the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 a meant to make amends to grave mistakes committed by those who wanted during the Partition of the country.
