GUWAHATI, March 16 - The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) today staged Statewide protests demanding immediate arrest of Subodh Biswas, the main accused in the Silapathar incident, besides protesting the proposed amendments in the Citizenship Act.

The alliance partner of the BJP-led State government also stated that it will not allow any foreigner to get settled in Assam on the basis of religion.

The party members staged demonstrations in the public places of every district and subdivision of the State. In Guwahati, former Chief Minister Prafulla Kumar Mahanta, general secretary of the party Ramendra Narayan Kalita and others led the protest in front of the AGP headquarters at Ambari in the city.

�A vested interest lobby is working day and night to ensure the settlement of illegal Bangladeshi migrants in Assam. The Silapathar incident was a burning example of that nefarious agenda, which is a threat to the existence of the indigenous Assamese people,� senior party leader Kamala Kanta Kalita said.

�The proposed amendments in the Citizenship Act, aimed at helping a section of illegal migrants, must also be rolled back immediately,� Kalita added.

Also demanding that the State government take strict and immediate measures against the anti-Assam forces, the AGP leaders said that the inability of the State administration to arrest the main accused behind the Silapathar incident was very unfortunate.

The protesters reiterated the long-pending demand of the party to implement the Assam Accord. They stated that the party would keep on protesting any move that is detrimental to the interests of Assam and its people.

AGP workers also staged protests at Tinsukia, Dibrugarh, Sivasagar, Jorhat, Majuli, Golaghat, Bokakhat, Kaliabor, Nagaon, Morigaon, Hojai, Silchar, Lakhimpur, Tezpur, Dhemaji, Biswanath, Gohpur and many other places.
