New outfit Sanmilita Songram Parishad�s anti-CAA stir from tomorrow

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Dec 17 - The newly launched Sanmilita Songram Parishad (SSP), a forum of 51 organisations fighting against the Citizenship Amendment Act, has announced a series of protest activities against the controversial legislation in Guwahati as well as in other parts of Assam.

Initially formed with the support of 45 organisations to carry forward the anti-CAA movement in a more streamlined manner, the strength of the forum has reached 51 within three days of its launch, with a number of youth and tribal bodies extending their support to the new entity.

The SSP will launch its agitational programme from December 19 with a sit-in strike at the Guwahati Club rotary from 11 am. On the evening of December 20 a shankhadhwani samadal � a torchlight procession with sounding of conch shells to the accompaniment of other Assamese folk musical instruments like dhol, doba, khol, etc., � will be taken out from Guwahati Club Rotary to Chandmari at 5 pm.

�On December 23, a protest rally will be staged at Bakaliaghat in Karbi Anglong to take the movement among our tribal brethren, who have shown keen interest in raising their voice against this legislation,� Manjit Mahanta a convenor of the SSP said here today.

A ten-member core committee has been formed to take decisions regarding the next course of action on the anti-CAA movement and supervise its implementation in coordination with all the 51 components of the forum. Another 13-member advisory committee has been constituted with members including Dr Hiren Gohain, Ajit Kumar Bhuyan, Arup Borbora, Prasanta Rajguru, Anup Chetia, Haider Hussain and others.

Meanwhile the Forum Against Citizenship Amendment Bill today filed a petition in the Supreme Court with Dr Hiren Gohain, HK Deka, Manjit Mahanta, Shantanu Borthakur, Haider Hussain and Deben Tamuly as petitioners. The case is likely to be taken up for hearing tomorrow along with other cases on the issue filed by a number of civil society organisations of Assam.
