The Assam Congress has thus far collected over 1 lakh Anti-CAA Gamosas through its door-to-door collection drive.

“Resonating with the plight of the people in Assam, the Congress cadres have been able to garner over one lakh gamosa through its door-to-door collection drive. In just a few days, people from across the State have poured their sentiments, on their Gamosas and handed them over to various senior Congress leaders, marking their dissent against the draconian Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) introduced by the BJP Government,” the Congress said in a statement.

The signed gamosas will be put up in the Anti-CAA-Martyrs Memorial in Guwahati, which the Congress has promised to build if it is voted to power in Assam.

Top Congress leaders expressed gratitude to the people of Assam for sending in their anti-CAA sentiments through gamosas to the Assam Congress.

Assam Congress president Ripun Bora said, “Our hope for a united and prosperous future for Assam is alive and thriving, as people have truly risen up to fight back divisive forces! Amazed that over a period of few days, we have already collected over 1 lakh gamosas bearing anti-CAA messages!”
