    Assam Farmers Sell Paddy To Power AASU’s Anti-CAA Protests

    Each household of the 85 revenue villages under Sasoni Mauza has offered 4kg of their paddy to raise funds to help AASU

    While the people of Assam have continued to staged protests against the highly controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), a group of villagers in Dibrugarh district have jointly decided to offer financial help to the All Assam Students’ Union(AASU) to aid its legal battle against the act in the Supreme Court.

    Each household of the 85 revenue villages under Sasoni Mauza has offered 4kg of their paddy to raise funds to help AASU fight their legal battle against the “anti-Assam” act.

    The villagers informed they collected around 450 quintals of paddy which was kept in the AASU’s Sasoni unit office. The collected harvest was sold at Sasoni Merbil ground today.

    It may be mentioned that the Students Union has been spearheading the anti-CAB protests in the state.

    On January 9th, 2020 Chief Justice of India (CJI) S A Bobde said that the Court will hear the challenge to the constitutionality of CAA only after the violence which erupted across the country against the legislation stops.

    The CAA grants citizenship to Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Parsi, Buddhist, and Christian refugees from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh who came to India on or before December 31st, 2014.
