Rahul Gandhi while addressing an election rally at Chaygaon in Assam’s Kamrup (Rural) district slammed the BJP-led Assam Government for ordering the police to ‘fire’ upon unarmed civilians who were out on the streets to protest against the CAA in December 2019.

As many as five (5) persons were shot dead by the police during the anti-CAA protests in Assam.

Rahul Gandhi said that killing youth of the State during the anti-CAA protests in fact was an attempt by the BJP-Government in the State to ‘murder’ Assam.

“When I had come to meet family of Dipanjal Das (killed in Guwahati during anti-CAA protests in 2019), I felt that bullets weren’t fired at one youth, it was fired at Assam. It was attempted to murder Assam. He wasn’t just a youth, he was an idea. He was Assam,” Rahul Gandhi said while addressing an election rally at Chaygaon in Kamrup (Rural) district.
