Guwahati: The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) on Saturday announced that it will hold agitation during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the state on Monday.
The students’ body will agitate against the BJP-led government’s alleged failure to implement Clause 6 of the Assam Accord.
Reportedly, the members of the union will wave black flags and wear black badges at all districts and sub-divisional headquarters.
The AASU leaders said that the Prime Minister did not bother to visit Assam and had merely reviewed the situation over the phone, but now that state election is round the corner, he has come thrice within a month to seek votes.
On January 23, AASU had launched a state-wide protest against the Centre on the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
The NRC exercise and the CAA have been opposed in Assam and AASU alleges that the Central government has violated Clause 6 of the Assam Accord – which guarantees constitutional, legislative, and administrative safeguards to protect preserve and promote the cultural, social, linguistic identity, and heritage of the Assamese people.
