    AASU Stages Statewide Protest Against Citizenship Bill

    AASU Chief Advisor Samujjal Bhattacharya and other leaders staged a sit-in demonstration in Guwahati

    The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) launched a statewide agitation against the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Bill on November 4th, 2019. Slogans against CAB reverted in the districts of Nalbari, Baksa, Hailakandi, Dibrugarh and so on.

    Thousands of the students’ union supporters, members and leaders took to the streets raising their voices against the implementation of the controversial bill.

    In Guwahati, AASU Chief Advisor Samujjal Bhattacharya, General Secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi and several union leaders holding placards staged a sit-in demonstration near the Dighalipukhuri park opposing the bill.

    The Bill seeks to grant Indian citizenship to the people belonging to the Hindus, Jains, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists and Parsis who have become the victims of religious persecution in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan and entered India on or before December 31st, 2014.

    Similarly, in Dibrugarh, hundreds of agitators took part in a rally and shouted slogans in front of the Deputy Commissioner’s office. The group further announced to intensify their agitation if the government does not take an urgent call.

    On the other hand protesters in Hailakandi had to wrap their agitation in midway after the district administration stopped them from carrying the protest.

    It may be mentioned that amid the widespread opposition, the center is vouching for the enacment of the law. Last month, Union Home Minister Amit Shah assured that a special clause will be incorporated in the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill or CAB so that Mizoram, Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh is not affected by the settlement of people from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan who are granted Indian citizenship.
