Gana satyagraha organised against CAA in Dibrugarh

By Staff Correspondent

DIBRUGARH, Dec 16 - Thousands of people took part in the gana satyagraha here today to register their protest against contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Act. The satyagraha was part of the State-wide protest against CAA called by the AASU.

All the leading organisation including ethnic bodies, student unions, teachers� association, Karmachari Parishad and others took part in the programme organised at Chowkidinghee. The protesters also took out a procession from the ground to the main commercial hub via Thana Chariali. The protesters reiterated that they are not going to accept the controversial Act and will continue to stage protests till it is repealed.

RCPI demands release of arrested leaders: Revolutionary Communist Party of India (RCPI) has condemned the arrest of Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti advisor Akhil Gogoi, pro-talk ULFA leader Jiten Dutta, secretary of the Progressive Youth Federation of India Uttam Kumar Chetia, KMSS general secretary Dharjya Konwar, Chatra Mukti Sangram Samiti leader Bitu Sonowal and several others.

Police had arrested the leaders recently while they were leading the masses to protest against the Citizenship Amendment Bill, now an Act. The RCPI has demanded unconditional release of all the arrested. In a press statement, the RCPI said the government must not assume that the mass movement against the contentious Act can be defeated by slapping police cases against the leaders of the movement. The people of the State have clearly understood that the Act is communal, unconstitutional and undemocratic. The people also know for sure that the Act will alter the demography of the State, affect its language and culture among others. Moreover the Act has also made the NRC and the Assam Accord meaningless.
