    Demand For AGP Leaders’ Resignation Gathers Momentum Over CAA

    The committee said that the grassroots workers are not happy with the stand of the party leaders over CAA

    The cracks in the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) has widened as the Guwahati City Committee of the party demanded the resignation of its central committee members for supporting the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

    AGP legislators Atul Bora, Keshab Mahanta and Phani Bhusan Choudhury, who are also ministers in the BJP-led government in Assam, have been accused of maintaining a ‘safe stand and stoic silence’ on the act.

    An executive meeting of the committee held at the party headquarters at Ambari in Guwahati on January 2nd, 2020. The meeting was attended by about 50 party members and was organised on the stairs of the office.

    A heated discussion took place during the meeting as the members vehemently opposed the party’s decision to support the CAA and the top party leaders participating in BJP-led peace rallies in the state.

    The city committee of the party demanded the resignations of party president Bora, working president Mahanta, senior leader Choudhury and Rajya Sabha MP Birendra Prasad Baishya.

    The committee said that the grassroots workers are not happy with the stand of the party leaders over CAA.

    In 2019, three AGP leaders had resigned as state ministers and snapped ties with the BJP over the Citizenship Amendment Bill. However, ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, the AGP joined hands with the BJP.
