DULIAJAN, July 15 - Demand for the release of Akhil Gogoi and other members of Krishak Mukti Sangram Samity and Satra Mukti Sangram Samity who were arrested for anti-Citizenship Amendment Act has been gaining a momentum.
At Bhadoi Panchali area of Duliajan constituency, protesters from Krishak Mukti Sangram Samity, Satra Mukti Sangram Samity, Tai Ahom Yuva Parishad, All Tai Ahom Union and other members on Wednesday came out to the streets demanding the release of Akhil Gogoi, Bitu Sonowal, Dhaijya Konwar and other activists who were arrested for the CAA protests.
The protesters displayed placards demanding better treatment for Akhil Gogoi, Bitu Sonowal and Dhaijya Konwar as they were found COVID-19 positive.
The BJP-led government put Akhil Gogoi behind the bars because they were afraid of the democratic protests of the KMSS, the members said. In absence of Akhil Gogoi, the BJP-led government has set up toll gates on highways and resumed the construction work of big dams, Satra Mukti Sangram Samity�s Dibrugarh district unit general secretary Madhurjya Baruah alleged.
Manash Pratim Konwar, central publicity secretary of Tai Ahom Yuva Parishad; Arup Phukan, president of All Tai Students� Union of Duliajan unit; Khiteswar Sonowal, president of KMSS, Bhadoi unit, among others participated in the protest.
