Tabling of CAB in Lok Sabha decried

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Dec 9 - Effigies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and State Cabinet ministers Atul Bora and Keshab Mahanta were hanged outside the Swahid Nyas here amid the All Assam Students� Union�s intense protest against the contentious Citizenship Amendment Bill that was introduced in the Lok Sabha today.

Terming the Bill a �political injustice� to the people of Assam, AASU asserted that the movement against CAB would continue and gain more strength in the days to come.

AASU chief adviser Dr Samujjal Bhattacharyya warned the Union government against playing divisive politics in the North East as the entire region is united against the CAB to protect their rights.

�The Centre would see the unity of north-eastern people in the North East bandh called by the North East Students� Organisation (NESO) on December 10. Our anti-Cab movement has now become a people�s movement and despite all their might, the BJP-led Union and Assam governments cannot suppress it,� he stated.

�Insertion of a new section 6B in CAB 2019 exempting the tribal and ILP-covered areas, is a ploy to divide the people. However, all the indigenous organisations of the region have expressed their support to the bandh tomorrow. Also, making Assam secure from illegal influx is crucial for security of the country. Hence, we appeal to all the political parties to vote against the CAB to make Assam and the country secure,� Bhattacharyya said.

Meanwhile, AASU protesters burned copies of the Bill and shouted slogans against the Prime Minister, the Union Home Minister and also against the State BJP and AGP leaders for their utter failure to protect the people of Assam against illegal infiltration. Later the protesters consigned effigies of the leaders to flames.

Torchlight processions were taken out by AASU activists at Dharapur and Azara off the city.
