    Akhil Writes Open Letter To Organisations Asking To Intensify Movement Against CAA

    The anti-Citizenship Amendment Act movement has become directionless and lengthy: Akhil Gogoi

    Assam firebrand leader and Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) chief Akhil Gogoi on January 24th, 2020, wrote an open letter to the leaders of the organisations representing various ethnic groups asking to intensify the movement against the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act.

    In the letter, Gogoi writes, “The movement has become directionless and lengthy. Symbolic movement is not going to work. We need to pressurise the government to bow down.”

    “We respect the cultural protests, gana garjan, gana samabesh and black-flag protests. But, these will not compel the government to scrap the act. These types of agitations were relevant before the law was passed in the parliament. So, there is a need to change the nature of the agitation,” he added.

    While emphasising the need to intensify the agitations, Gogoi said, “Following the passage of the bill, people had joined the protests in large numbers across the state. People stood in unison against the act. But, the movement has lost its momentum.” He appealed the people from all walk to stand in unison against the act for the interest of the greater Assamese community.

    Besides, talking about the formation of a new political party, the leader said, “Announcement of the formation of the new political party was too early. This has confused people.”

    It may be mentioned that the All Assam Students’ Union, an influential students’ body, called for a political party to fight against the Bharatiya Janata Party. The body is likely to take forward the matter in a forceful manner after February 2020.
