GUWAHATI, Sept 29 - Members of the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) will resort to a 28-hour fast on the bank of the Dighalipukhuri here from 9 am tomorrow in protest against the Central government�s notification for granting entry and staying rights to non-Muslim migrants who have entered Indian territories till December 31, 2014 from Bangladesh and Pakistan.
AGP general secretary Ramendra Narayan Kalita said in a statement here this evening that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has gone against all the pledges it had made in the run-up to the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and has been taking such steps which have been posing a serious threat to the existence of Assam and its indigenous peoples.
The BJP is out to make Assam a grazing ground for illegal migrants and it is also trying hard to distinguish the illegal migrants on communal lines only to garner the votes of illegal migrants. With such steps, the BJP has been making a mockery of the historic Assam agitation and the Assam Accord.
The AGP members will fight against such heinous conspiracies, said the AGP general secretary.
