GUWAHATI, March 12 � The All Assam Students� Union (AASU) and 26 organisations today decided to launch a joint movement demanding constitutional protection to the indigenous people of Assam to protect them from the demographic invasion by the foreign nationals.
The office-bearers of the AASU and 26 organisations would meet again on March 17 to chalk out the future course of action in this regard.
An AASU release stated that special constitutional protection for the indigenous people of Assam under the provisions of Clause 6 of the Assam Accord is a must for protection of their identity. The AASU said that the definition of Assamese people is required only for reservation of seats in Assembly, Parliament and local bodies. The AASU also alleged that the government is trying to create confusion on the issue.
