    CAA Protest 2.0: KMSS & 70 Groups Aims to Dethrone BJP from Dispur

    The conglomerate also asked all the regional forces of the state to join hands in the mission

    GUWAHATI: CAA Protest 2.0: “What’s BJP and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)’s definition of ‘Assamese community’ and how they think that the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) will help the community?” asked the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) along with 70 indigenous groups and a regional party who vowed to begin the second phase of anti CAA protest across the state.

    Announcing that the CAA Protest 2.0 will aim to uproot all communal forces out of power in Dispur, the conglomerate also asked all the regional forces of the state to join hands in the mission.

    Dhaijya Konwar, general secretary of KMSS, told media, “The second phase of the anti CAA movement after the Conronavirus pandemic will be stronger than the previous one. Not only the people of Assam has seen the imposition of the Act upon us despite protests and people dying but also has witnessed the atrocity of the state government over those who protested against the Act. That’s why we want to ask them (state government) what good this Act will do to the people of Assam?”

    He also alleged that during the first phase of the anti CAA movements in Assam last year before the pandemic, many people have joined the movement to dilute it or to gain personal mileage.

    “We suspect some of them were planted by the government side to divert the protests,” he added.

    Adding to him, Debojit Dutta, president of Sangrami Yuba-Chatra Parishad Asom (SYCPA) said, “From Sunday, our members will take forward an anti CAA campaign across the state. This time we have to bring an end to this anti-Assam law and to uproot all these forces which have betrayed the community from power. We want all the regional forces to join hands to finish these anti-Assam politics.”

    The KMSS and 70 indigenous groups have also floated a new regional party, named ‘Raijor Dal’ (People’s Party) and preparing for the assembly polls of 2021 in Assam.
