    “On January 3rd, 2020, the AASU and other supporting organisations will hold protests at all the sub-divisions across the state and on January 9th, the protestors will hold cultural protests. The protestors will take out torch rallies on January 11th and burn the replica of the act in the fire of the Meji on January 13th, and 14th, 2020,” Nath said.

    The AASU leader said that the AASU and the other supporting organisations along with the artistes’ fraternity will continue staging protests against the act since it jeopardises the existential identity of the greater Assamese community.

    Moreover, Nath slammed that Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and state Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma for ‘misleading’ the people by giving different data on the presence. “CM Sonowal and Himanta Biswa Sarma have still been misleading the people even after the Union Home Minister Amit Shah has admitted that there is influx problem in the Northeast and it would affect the area adversely,” he added.
