GUWAHATI, Nov 21 - The All Assam Students� Union (AASU) today asserted that Assam won�t take the burden of illegal migrants coming to the State after the cut-off date fixed by the Assam Accord, irrespective of their religion.
Taking out torchlight processions across the State against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill � CAB � in association with its 30 allied organisations, the student body reiterated that the indigenous population of entire State was united against the CAB and it cannot be forced on the people of Assam or the northeastern region.
Student organisations and ethnic groups representing various indigenous communities of the State have extended their full support to the movement. Accordingly, processions were taken out by different organisations in several places across the State.
The protesters made it clear that under no circumstances the Centre�s move to give shelter to illegal migrants would be tolerated by the region�s people.
In Guwahati, the torchlight procession was taken out under the aegis of All Kamrup Students� Union and All Guwahati Students� Union. AASU president Dipanka Kumar Nath, general secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi and chief advisor Samujjal Bhattacharya participated in the protest action along with student leaders of the Karbi Students� Union and All Assam Sonowal Kachari Students� Union.
