AASU moots new forum against CAA

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Feb 28 - The All Assam Students� Union (AASU) is planning to float a new forum, comprising its existing allies in the anti-CAA agitation, organisations associated with the historic Assam Movement as well as other like-minded bodies which led non-violent and democratic protests against the amended Citizenship Act.

After its State executive meeting and representatives� meet held on February 27 and 28 in Guwahati, the students� union has decided to fortify the anti-CAA agitation towards mid-March, when the various ongoing exams will get over. A citizens� convention has also been proposed to brainstorm on various sides of the stir.

Despite speculations about AASU�s preparations to form a new regional political party, the students� body refrained from commenting about leading a political alternative. Instead, it maintained that the amended Citizenship Act remained at the core of AASU�s agitation and all steps would be taken to ensure a strong unified deterrence to the same.

AASU advisor Dr Samujjal Bhattacharyya told The Assam Tribune that there are plans to reorganise the Assam Unnati Sabha and Assam Sena after a thorough consultation with all stakeholders.

All decisions on the next phase of anti-CAA movement would be finalised and announced after consulting our 30 allied organisations, the AJYCP, artistes� fraternity and other bodies associated with us in this movement, he stated.

�The proposed forum would have our previous allies, the organisations which were associated with the Assam Movement and other like-minded organisations whose outlook and way of operation match with ours,� he added.

At the same time the students� body also asked the government to stop atrocities on AASU members protesting CAA in different parts of the State. �Today also, our protesters faced atrocities by security forces in Barpathar of Golaghat. This is not acceptable,� he added.

Regarding the issue of the Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR) Bhattacharyya said that it is the responsibility of the Union and State governments and the signatories of the accord to ensure that interests of others residing in the region are not affected. AASU will also hold a meeting with the signatories of the Bodo peace accord, over this issue, he added.
