GUWAHATI, March 14 - The All Assam Students� Union (AASU) will file an intervention appeal in the Supreme Court over the ongoing case concerning the Centre�s notification on providing asylum to Hindu Bangladeshi migrants in India.
The AASU had earlier filed a writ petition challenging the Centre�s notification, but �as it has not received any positive response in the case, it has decided to file an intervention appeal.�
In a statement, the AASU said that under no circumstances would the students� body agree to the Centre�s directive to granting shelter to Hindu migrants from Bangladesh.
�It was decided under the Assam Accord that all illegal Bangladeshi migrants irrespective of their religious affiliation will have to be detected and deported from Assam. The Centre's stand seeking asylum and then citizenship status for illegal Hindu migrants from Bangladesh is an out and out anti-people stand. If accepted, it will jeopardize the very existence of the State's indigenous populace,� it said.
