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.
“We have our ears on ground and we expect that party will get at least 50 lakh Gamosa from the state and all of them will be displayed at the upcoming memorial,” said Ripun Bora, APCC president.
Recently, Congress leader Rahul Gandi visited the state and kicked-off his first public rally ahead of Assam Assembly polls. Gandhi along with all the senior Congress leaders of Assam wore a gamosa on which symbolically the word CAA was crossed out, making it clear that Congress’s opposition to the controversial law will be a major poll plank.
Accusing the BJP and the RSS of ‘dividing’ Assam, Rahul Gandhi in the rally said that his party will protect every principle of the Assam Accord and will not let the Citizenship Amendment Act be implemented if voted to power in the upcoming assembly polls.
Gaurav Gogoi took twitter to urge everyone to take part in the campaign. He wrote: “Your chance to be a part of history! 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.”
