GUWAHATI, March 16 - A joint meeting of the All Assam Students� Union (AASU) and Assam Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chhatra Parishad (AJYCP) today decided to announce the next phase of agitation against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) on April 1.
Both the organisations would organise joint meetings at district level across the State and form joint forums to lead anti-CAA stir in an organised format.
�The next line of agitation would be announced after consulting our 30 allied organisations, artistes� fraternity and others associated with the movement. AASU-AJYCP joint meetings would be held in every region on March 19 to form the joint forums of both the bodies. On March 20, a similar meeting would be held in Guwahati,� the students� body stated.
To lead an organised protest, district level collective forums would also be formed on March 22 followed by a similar exercise in Guwahati on March 23.
�The idea is to lead a sustained protest through organised bodies at district and State levels. We are also planning to form a State-level common forum with all likeminded forces opposing the controversial Act,� AASU president Dipanka Kumar Nath and AJYCP president Rana Pratap Barua said.
In view of the growing concern regarding the spread of coronavirus, the AASU has asked the State government to take precautionary measures on war-footing and create adequate awareness in all the districts and every region.
