    PM Modi & HM Shah to be greeted with Black Flags: AASU

    In 2019 too, Modi was shown black flags in at least two places in Guwahati over the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Bill then

    GUWAHATI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi may relive the memories of ‘black flags’ being shown to him in Assam as All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) has once again planed to greet the Prime Minister and Union home minister Amit Shah with black flags.

    While PM Modi is slated to visit Sivasgar on January 23, Shah will visit the state on January 24.

    AASU president Dipanko Kumar Nath on Monday said that the student group has decided to launch a series of protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) keeping the BJP leaders’ visit to the state in mind.

    “On January 22, a day ahead of PM’s visit, AASU will take out torch rallies all over the state. On January 23, the students will wear black masks and demonstrate protest against CAA. The AASU members will host black flags and burn the effigy of CAA on January 24,” Nath announced.

    In 2019 too, Modi was shown black flags in at least two places in Guwahati over the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Bill then.

    The student group termed the PM as a liar and said that the BJP has failed to keep its promise of safeguarding the Assamese community from the illegal influx.

    “Every time there is an election, the PM will come and make false statements to woo the people of the state. The people of Assam have already realized the truth behind the politics and will never accept CAA,” he added.

    A year after five persons including a school student was killed while protesting the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA), the issue of illegal migrants and their citizenship has once again come into focus with state polls are just a few months away.
