    Citizenship Bill: Students ‘Ban’ Sonowal, Himanta’s Entry Into Dibrugarh University

    The students demanded that the Bill should be repealed or Assam should be excluded from the ambit of the Bill

    In wake of protests against the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill across Assam, the Dibrugarh University (DU) students have ‘banned’ the entry of Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal for his alleged silence on it. The varsity is Sonowal’s alma mater.

    Along with Sonowal, the students ‘banned’ the entry of Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, Rajya Sabha MP Kamakhya Prasad Tasa and Lahoal MLA Rituparna Baruah into the varsity campus.

    Speaking to Time8, Rahul Chetry, general secretary of the Dibrugarh University Post Graduate Students’ Union (DUPGSU) said that the decision to ban Sonowal was taken as the Chief Minister had remained silent on the Bill. Dibrugarh was once Sonowal’s home constituency.

    “The people of the state should join hands and protest against the Bill. It’s time to launch a movement against the decision of the Centre. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Jatiya Khalnayak (national villain) Sonowal are forcefully trying to dump the Bill on us,” said Chetry.

    The DUPGSU had last year too ‘banned’ Sonowal’s entry into the varsity campus. The students demanded that the Bill should be repealed or Assam should be excluded from the ambit of the Bill.

    The Bill seeks to grant Indian citizenship to the people belonging to the Hindus, Jains, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Parsis who have become the victims of religious persecution in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan and entered India on or before December 31st, 2014.

    He added, “Sonowal being a student of the varsity has embarrassed us by supporting the Bill. From now on, we will address him as Jatiya Khalnayak and not as Jatiya Nayak (national hero). We ban his entry to the varsity from where he started his political career.”

    On November 30th, 2019, the students of Cotton University took out a torch rally against the Bill and sought immediate scrapping of the controversial “anti-Assam” Bill.
