    Identify And Assam

    The anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests, which erupted in Assam on December 11th, 2019, rocked the Assam Assembly’s special session today.  The state Congress and the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) vehemently opposed the act, which will jeopardize the identity of the Assamese community.

    The Congress, which is the main opposition in the Assembly, boycotted the tea party after the Governor’s speech while the AIUDF legislators staged protests holding placards.

    Congress has unequivocally raised its voice against the act since day one saying that it would have a severe impact on the state demographically as well as geographically. Kaliabor MP Gaurav Gogoi had raised the issue in the parliament and urged the government to ensure constitutional safeguard to the people of the state.

    The oppositions also raised ‘Joi Aai Asom’ slogan, which has been chanted over the month by the protesters on the streets, in the assembly in protest against the act. Congress accused the government of running dictatorship in the state as well as at the Centre.  Former three-time Assam Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Tarun Gogoi slammed the government by saying that the act has violated the Assam Accord.

    But, the question arises here is why the oppositions are shouting in the assembly and the parliament against the act now. Why did not they do anything before the bill was passed? What did they do during the Congress rule in the state?

    It is pertinent to be mentioned that amid the protests, which turned violent in some of the parts in the country, the government issued the gazette notification for the implementation of the act on January 10th, 2020.

    It is all about political gimmick which confuses people. Each and every party is engaged in strengthening their vote banks so that they can come to power.

    Implementation of historic Assam Accord signed in 1985 between the Government of India and the state government and the All Assam Students’ Union leaders in letter and spirit has become a tool for the political parties and many organizations.

    The future role of the oppositions and also the organizations will be significant since it is the question about the existential identity.
