TINSUKIA, Sept 11 - In support of the All Assam Students� Union (AASU), the Tinsukia District Students� Union (TDSU) took out a torch rally on Thursday in Tinsukua town protesting the Centre�s move to provide citizenships to the minority people who came to India till December 31, 2014.
The rally was started from the office of the students� body situated near the Tinsukia College, covered places like College Road, GNB Road etc., and culminated at the starting point.
While condemning the move of the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi-led Central Government, Pulak Chetia, vice-president of the AASU�s central committee warned that it would not tolerate the step. He added that when the National Register of Citizens process was going on in the State under the supervision of the Supreme Court, the move of the Central Government was nothing but to dilute the Apex Court�s order. He also criticised all the political parties of the State for not taking any stand in this regard.
