Members of the newly floated All Assam Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AAJYCP) on Monday pledged to uphold Assam’s interests and undertake several works like securing autonomy, inner line permit and dual citizenship.
AAJYCP, the breakaway faction of the Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP), mostly comprises expelled and disenchanted AJYCP members.
“We oppose the Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2016 and not let it be implemented,” said AAJYCP president Ritul Pathak while addressing the media in Jorhat on Monday.
He further said that since independence Assam has been deprived of various things and hence their prime objective is to aware the people about these deprivations via various meetings and campaigns.
“The AJYCP had become a weak organisation and was divided by lobbyists who were working for their own interests instead of putting the interests of the state first,” said AAJYCP chief adviser Dwipendra Narayan Konwar.
“Hence, it had become imperative to form this new organisation which would take up the interest of the indigenous people of the state without any self-interest,” added Pathak.
It was also informed that in September a state convention of AAJYCP would be convened in which the ad hoc committee would be accepted or dissolved and a new central committee would be formed.
“The name of the organisation would be ratified or a new name would be suggested,” Pathak further said.
