Mammoth protest rally at Sivasagar over CAA

By ANN Service

SIVASAGAR, Dec 21 - Addressing a mammoth anti-CAA rally at Sivasagar Boarding Field today, noted journalist Ajit Kumar Bhuyan sharply criticised the governments, both at the Centre and the State, for allegedly ushering in an era of terror with curfews, police firing, muzzling of the media and a total failure to address public grievances.

Referring to the deaths due to police firing in Guwahati, Bhuyan said that the Sonowal government has started the politics of killings and intolerance in the State. Demanding the immediate release of Akhil Gogoi, Bhuyan said that Akhil is an exceptional leader, not a criminal and all black laws have been heaped upon him deliberately. Bhuyan castigated the Chief Minister�s appeal through the media to the people of the State yesterday and said, �there is no meaning in them, only words, words�. He added that the State government as advised by their mentors in Delhi have dolled out baits to the youths in the form of thousands of government jobs and the Sixth Schedule with a view to weakening the mass movement.

Bhuyan said that the 13 VC s should not have toed the line set by the government when they appealed to the student community to return to their classrooms and asked where they were when the boys were gunned down and the industries were doled out to the capitalists from outside the State.

The meeting was also addressed by noted actor Barsha Rani Bishoya who, in her speech, clarified that she was least interested in pursuing a career in politics. She has come out, she added, in response to her inner call and the call of the masses. Manas Robin, noted singer, called upon the youths to raise their voices now or never. The meeting organised under the banner of �Asomiyar Ronoddhani�, was addressed by noted linguist Nahendra Padun, Sringhal Chaliha and several others.

In another meeting organised by the Sanmilita Sivasagar Mahila Mancha and supported by AASU Sivasagar unit, several women leaders and prominent speakers severely criticised the Narendra Modi-Amit Shah-led BJP government at the Centre and its State wing led by Sarbananda Sonowal and Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma for not paying heed to the people�s cry. The speakers Jayashree Chaliha, Amulya Baruah Phukan, Tulika Chetiya Yien, Bharati Bordoloi Ojha, Gitali Bora, Dipti Dutta Konwar, Swarnajyoti Baruah Borbora, Rupa Bora, Amiya Kalita Neog, Preety Pareek, Tanushree Dey, Dipika Neog Hazarika, Narjee Begum, Kalpana Dutta, Meghali Hazarika, Chandrama Gogoi and Pikumoni Dutta. Jayashree Dutta, Bidyawati Patgiri, Pori Mahanta, Devabala Gogoi, Bidyawati Changmai, Pratima Saikia and Mandira Bora, in their speeches opposed CAA and demanded a roll back of its implementation.
