AJYCP staging 36-hour hunger stir against CAA

By City Correspondent

GUWAHATI, Dec 16 - Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) today staged a 36-hour hunger strike across the State against the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA). The Parishad also filed a writ petition against the Act in the Supreme Court today.

�All the district members of AJYCP today staged a hunger strike against the Act in their respective districts. Here in Guwahati, more than 200 members of AJYCP gathered around 6 am at Ulubari High School field and 20 members will be staging the hunger strike till 6 pm tomorrow (Tuesday). The Parishad will carry on the movement with a slogan �No CAA, yes ILP�, AJYCP president Rana Pratap Baruah said while taking part in the strike.

�Various organisations including AASU, APCC president Ripun Bora and noted writer Mayur Bora among others visited us and expressed their solidarity with us against CAA,� he added.

The youth body members said the ILP was a more practical immediate step in the present scenario because it does not require any Constitutional amendment.

AJYCP general secretary Palash Changmai said, �We will not accept CAA in any form. The Act is against the interests of the people of Assam, and it can�t be accepted. We will continue our protest till the Act is scrapped.�

The Parishad will also organise public meetings in rural pockets of the State from December 18 to create awareness about the new legislation.

The hearing to the writ petition filed by the All Assam Lawyers� Association in the Supreme Court will take place tomorrow, a press release said.
