The All Assam Students’ Union(AASU) and 30 other organizations are about to hold a cultural protest in Guwahati’s Latasil playground on Christmas day.
Speaking about their artistic protest AASU advisor Samujjal Kumar Bhattacharya said that the protest will be held in the form of a cultural programme where young artists can come and perform their poems, create arts and oppose the Citizenship Amendment Act(CAA).
He also reiterated that their opposition and democratic protests against CAA will continue in the coming times.
Pointing to an appeal on the anti-CAA protests by some “16 renowned personalities” to the media, Bhattacharya dabbed them as “opportunist”.
“Some people change their colours a lot. They are opportunist. These 16 renowned personalities have made an appeal at the media that the CAA struggles should be stopped. The appeal itself is mysterious, neither there is any mention of the martyrs who lost their lives in the recent protest. We do not need their suggestions,” said Bhattacharya.
“If they do not want an escalation of anti-CAA protest then they should sit with the Prime Minister and state Chief Minister to withdraw the act,” he added.
While talking about students participating in the protest, the AASU advisor maintained that, students, office goers should maintain their time schedule with the education, workplace and also voice their opposition against the act for the sanctity of motherland.
It may be mentioned that earlier Bhattacharya, General Secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi and 1,000 other protesters were detained by the police in Guwahati while they took out a protest rally against the CAA.
