    KMSS burns the effigy of CM Sonowal; demands immediate release of Akhil Gogoi

    The KMSS unit also formed a boat chain in a tributary of the river Kopili flowing along with the Doboka town in protest against the state government’s alleged illegal imprisonment of peasant leader Akhil Gogoi for a long time.

    GUWAHATI: The Doboka Anchalik unit of the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) on Thursday burnt the effigy of Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal at Doboka in central Assam’s Hojai district and demanded immediate and unconditional release of peasant leader Akhil Gogoi.

    The KMSS unit also formed a boat chain in a tributary of the river Kopili flowing along with the Doboka town in protest against the state government’s alleged illegal imprisonment of peasant leader Akhil Gogoi for a long time.

    The members of the KMSS said, “Akhil Gogoi is not only the voice of the people of Assam. He (Gogoi) also represents the voice and sentiment of the people of India. Confining him for a long period inside the jail is illegal and against democracy.”

    Cautioning that the socio-political atmosphere of the state will turn chaotic if Akhil Gogoi is imprisoned for a long duration, the KMSS members said, “The BJP is wrong if they are thinking that they would be able to dominate the people of Assam for a long time. We will not succumb to the autocratic ruling of the fascist BJP. The KMSS and Akhil Gogoi will continue exposing the BJP.”

    The KMSS further stressed that the ruling BJP has been quite indifferent to the grievances faced by the people of Assam. “We will answer the BJP its dominance and suppression,” the peasant organisation said.

    The KMSS also reiterated that the people of Assam will never accept the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
