They came down heavily on the Central and State Governments and BJP, AGP leaders of Delhi for �not listening to the voices� of masses of Assam who were opposing the Act that has posed serious threat to survival of Assamese language, other indigenous languages and their cultures.

Artists, musicians and poets performed with renditions of songs and recitation of poems in praise of Assam motherland.

But the people will resist this tooth and nail. �First we are Assamese and then Indians�, he added.

He also said that the ongoing movement is not against any religion, but to preserve our language which is ranked 65 in terms of speakers and is endangered now due to the aggression of Bengali, which occupies the fourth position. Basanta Gogoi, vice-president, ATASU, said that the movement is against illegal infiltrators to safeguard our language and culture and any threats from Delhi and Dispur cannot dissuade the people from the agitation.
