GUWAHATI, Dec 2 � The All Assam Students� Union (AASU) today criticised the all-party delegation of Members of Parliament from Bangladesh for their denial on the illegal migration to Assam from the neighbouring country.
The student body said that at a time, when illegal migration is posing threat to the very existence of the indigenous Assamese people and is causing demographic changes in Assam, such denial is not acceptable to the people of Assam.
The student body burnt the effigies of Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in front of the hotel, where the delegation from Bangladesh is staying.
AASU also criticised the State Government and the Prime Minister for not taking up the problem of illegal migration with the Bangladesh government while they visited the neighbouring country.
�Instead, a land swap deal was signed for ceding Assam�s land to Bangladesh, and the Chief Minister of Assam falsely claimed after the land swap deal that the issue of illegal migration was taken up with Government of Bangladesh,� a statement from the student organization mentioned.
AASU advisor Samujjal Kr Bhattacharyya said that the Government of India would have to provide Constitutional safeguard ensuring supremacy of the indigenous people in Assam.
