    Guwahati: The Assam Congress on Wednesday strengthened its anti-CAA stance the party told its cadre to visit every house of the state and collect Gamosa with anti-CAA message which will be displayed at ‘upcoming Martyrs’ Memorial in Guwahati.

    “The Congress building an anti-CAA memorial in Guwahati and I would request every Assamese to share Gamosa with your message with us. You may sign the Gamosa and sent it to us through courier or hand it over to any party worker when he visits you,” said Congress Manifesto Committee Chairman Gaurav Gogoi while addressing a meeting in Bihpuria town.

Humbly request you to write-why you don’t want CAA in Assam with your name on a Gamosa & send it to INC Assam office. It will find a place at the grand memorial to be built in Guwahati in memory of the anti-CAA movement.”
