Sankardev Sangha session ends with vehement protest against CAB

By DALIM PHUKAN

MORIGAON, Feb 9 - The 88th session of the Srimanta Sankardev Sangha came to an end at Sahityarathi Lakshminath Bezborua Khetra, Morigaon with vehement protest against the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB).

Today, the meeting of the newly-elected executive body of Sangha was held and in this meeting, a resolution vehemently protesting the CAB was taken. It may be mentioned here that no Minister of the BJP government took part in yesterday�s open session of the Sangha despite invitation to the Chief Minister and several Cabinet Ministers of the state government. Perhaps the Sankardev Sangha�s anti-CAB stand was the cause behind the absence of those BJP leaders in the open session of the Sangha, some organisers told this correspondent.

The last open meeting held on the occasion today was presided over by Kamala Kanta Gogoi, newly-elected president of the Srimanta Sankardev Sangha. Inaugurating the meeting, Prafulla Chandra Bora, general secretary of the Sangha said that during the last 88 years of its existence, the Srimanta Sankardev Sangha has been propagating the ideologies of Mahapurush Srimanta Sankardev uniting the several ethnic groups of North East on a common platform. The biggest socio-religious organisation of North East India will work for the people of the region ushering in peace and prosperity, he added.

Speaking on the occasion, former Chief Minister Prafulla Kumar Mahanta said that Guru Sankardev who propagated the new Vaishnavite Movement in north-eastern India built the foundation of Assamese literature and culture in the 15th century and the Srimanta Sankardev Sangha deserves thanks because this organisation has been doing its level best for the growth and development of the Sankari culture for the last 88 years.

Addressing the gathering, former Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said that the international humanism propagated by Mahapurush Sankardev is still prevalent in Assam, where exemplary communal harmony still exists. Noted social worker Hem Bhai presented a valuable lecture on spiritual thought and Srimanta Sankardev. Former Ministers Keshab Mahanta and Utpal Datta also spoke on the occasion.

The next (89th) session of Srimanta Sankardev Sangha will be held at Bokakhat in Golaghat district.
