Assamese people will not compromise at any cost: Lurinjyoti

By A Correspondent

DULIAJAN, Jan 8 - The All Assam Students� Union along with 30 other indigenous student organisations today organised a protest at the home district of Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal.

Organised by AASU Tengakhat unit along with 30 other allied student organisations at Tengakhat College playground in Dibrugarh district, the agitation programme was participated by more than 5000 people from all walks of life.

Showing total disagreement with the State and Central government on the stand of CAA, AASU general secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi said that on illegal migration and rights of the indigenous people of the land, the Assamese will not compromise at any cost. �The Centre wants to make the Assamese a minority, so that we are not able to exercise our roles in the political and social spheres. The fundamental loophole in the Act is that foreigners coming to our motherland till 2014 will get citizenship without any documentation. The communal government wants to make the proud Assamese race a disabled one. But the cunning rulers clinging to power have forgotten that we, the Assamese, do not bend our backbone. You (the BJP) may try, but we will not bow down our heads.�

He said, Assam was the first State in India which showed disagreement with the Centre and even made other parts of the country conscious about the conspiracy of the BJP-led government. It is a fight to safeguard democracy, a fight to safeguard the Constitution and a fight to safeguard the culture and language of Assam.

Criticising Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, Gogoi added that they may have sacrificed their souls to get to the chairs of power, but the people of Assam will not compromise.

The All Assam Tea Tribes Students� Association president Rajen Kumar, All Assam Sonowal Kachari Students Union president Debananda Cheleng, Raju Sonowal, president, Dibrugarh district unit, Tribal Sangha, Sankar Lama, vice-president, All Assam Gorkha Students� Union, Udayan Kumar Gogoi, secretary, Asom Jatiyabadi Yuba Parishad, Anil Gogoi, AASU central cultural secretary, Sankarjyoti Baruah, AASU, Dibrugarh district unit general secretary and many leaders of ethnic body organisations of the State among others were present.

The protesters later played an orchestra of ethnic musical instruments and vowed publicly to continue the mass movement till the scraping of the vexed CAA.

Our Jorhat Staff Correspondent adds: Activists of Jorhat district unit of the AJYCP this evening took out a torch rally in the thoroughfares here demanding scrapping of the CAA.

Holding banners and placards opposing the amended Citizenship Act, the protesters shouted slogans against BJP Governments at the Centre and State and leaders in Delhi and Dispur.

People, including women, from different sections of the society joined the protest.

Our Tinsukia Correspondent adds: A huge rally was taken out at Digboi town today demanding repeal of the CAA 2019 with the initiative of regional units of student and other organisations.
