GUWAHATI, Oct 21 - Voicing its strong opposition to the Centre�s decision to grant citizenship to Hindu migrants from Bangladesh, the Sadou Asam Karmachari Parishad (SAKP) today warned the Centre, the State government and all other parties concerned that under no circumstances would it tolerate any dilution of the Assam Accord that had clearly stated that all illegal migrants, irrespective of their religious affiliation, would be deported from Assam.

In a statement, the SAKP, while pointing out that nearly 900 martyrs � mostly youths and 68 State government employees � embraced martyrdom in the epoch-making anti-foreigner movement during 1979-85, the Centre�s decision on granting citizenship to Hindu migrants would be tantamount to grave disrespect to the supreme sacrifice of the martyrs and a total negation of the historic Assam Accord, which is a sacred document crucial for the survival of the indigenous people of Assam.

The SAKP, which had made its stand clear on the issue through a memorandum to the joint parliamentary panel concerning the Citizenship (Amendment Bill) 2016, said that there could be no two opinions about maintaining the sanctity of the cut-off date of March 25, 1971 under which every illegal migrant from Bangladesh was to be detected and deported from Assam, irrespective of his/her religion.

The SAKP will observe November 1 as Karmachari Swahid Divas (Employee Martyrs� Day).
