GUWAHATI, Oct 24 - Alleging that enactment of the proposed Citizenship Amendment Bill would deal a death blow to the Assamese language, threatening the existence and identity of the Assamese people in their own land, the Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba-Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) today said that it was ready to put up a strong resistance against the legislation.

AJYCP president Biraj Kumar Talukdar, while addressing the media here, said that though it is a national law, the proposed amendments would afflict the most adverse impact on Assam, creating a �Tripura-like� situation in the State.

The organisation has announced a series of agitational programmes from October 28, that includes a protest march in Guwahati on November 11 and a dharna at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on November 28.

In its representations to the JPC and the Union government, the AJYCP suggested giving long-term visa and work permits to the persons seeking asylum due to religious persecution in the neighbouring country.

�Though it is argued that Assam need not solely take the burden of Hindu Bangladeshis, it is anybody�s guess that the due to geographical, cultural and linguistic proximity, the migrated people from Bangladesh would eventually settle in Assam. Moreover, it would become a legally accepted and never ending process,� he added.

Talukdar also lambasted the State politicians, including those from the ruling parties. �Most of the people�s representatives are devoid of any ideology or any commitment and loyalty towards the State and its people,� the AJYCP said. It also warned politicians not to compromise the interest of the State for their narrow political gains.
