GUWAHATI, Sept 22 - The Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chhatra Parishad (AJYCP) has asked the State leadership not to fall prey to the Union government�s move to amend the Indian Citizenship Act, a move that will pose a huge threat to Assam and the Assamese. The youth body warned of intensifying its agitation to resist the move.
In a statement, the organisation�s president Biraj Kumar Talukdar said, �A slew of recent moves in Delhi has proved beyond doubt that the BJP-led Government at the Centre is least bothered about the Bangladeshi immigrant issue.�
�Instead, the Narendra Modi Government is keen to have a huge Hindu Bangladeshi vote bank to ensure a better political career of the BJP leaders,� the AJYCP leader said.
The AJYCP further appealed to the joint parliamentary committee, to which the bill has been referred, not to clear the amendment �which could cripple socio-economic and political scenario of Assam�.
