AASU asks Modi to declare time-bound action plan

By R Dutta Choudhury

GUWAHATI, Jan 16 - The All Assam Students� Union (AASU) has called upon Prime Minister Narendra Modi to declare a time-bound action plan for implementation of all the clauses of the Assam Accord instead of trying to create confusion among the people on the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 (CAA).

Reacting to the Prime Minister�s statement that some organisations were trying to mislead the youths on the CAA, AASU chief adviser Samujjal Bhattacharya said Modi should read the vision document of the BJP before the last State Assembly elections, which promised to implement all the clauses of the Assam Accord. He said that in his first five-year tenure as Prime Minister, Modi could not find even an hour to review the implementation of the Assam Accord. �In his second tenure , Modi should declare a time-bound action plan to implement the Assam Accord instead of violating it with the CAA,� he said.

Bhattacharya said the Prime Minister should try to contradict the observations of the Supreme Court and the Gauhati High court if he can. The Supreme Court, while scrapping the Illegal Migrants (Determination by Tribunals) Act, observed that due to large-scale migration from Bangladesh, Assam was facing external aggression and internal disturbance, while the Gauhati High Court had also observed that if the illegal migration continued, the indigenous people of Assam would become minorities in their own land.

The people of Assam and other states of the region are agitating against the CAA as the identity of the indigenous people is at stake, said Bhattacharya. He also pointed out that Assam has already taken the burden of foreigners who entered the State from 1951 to 1971. �The State will not accept the burden of any foreign national who entered Assam after the midnight of March 24, 1971 irrespective of his or her religion,� he asserted and said that the peaceful democratic movement against the CAA would continue till the Act is scrapped.
