AASU stages 30-hour sit-in, demands arrest of Subodh Biswas

From a Correspondent

Golaghat (Dhekial), March 20:  The activists of All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) of Golaghat district  staged a 30-hour sit-in on Monday in Golaghat near the Deputy Commissioner’s office, protesting against the Silapathar incident and demanding the arrest of prime culprit Subodh Biswas,  and withdrawal of the citizenship amendment bill, 2016.

The activists shouted various anti-government slogans for failing to arrest the main accused of the Silapathar incident, Subodh Biswas. They slammed the Sarbananda Sonowal-led State Government as well as the Narendra Modi-led Central Government for taking the initiative to settle Hindu refugees through the citizenship amendment bill, 2016.

Talking to media persons, the president and secretary of AASU Golaghat regional committee, Angshuman Boruah and Biswajit Gogoi respectively said that prime accused Subodh Biswas of Nikhil Bharat Bangali Udbastu Samanvay Samiti (NIBBUSS) had not been arrested till date. The role of Assam Police as well as the Assam Government was condemnable. Besides, they said that the move of granting citizenship to Hindu illegal migrants who came to Assam from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan would not be tolerated. “We demand immediate cancellation of the citizenship amendment bill, 2016 otherwise the Assam Government will face massive agitation in the coming days,” they said.

They said that the people of Assam had hoped that the Narendra Modi-led BJP government would resolve all burning problems of the State. But instead of solving major problems of Assam, the Modi government had given the burden of illegal Hindu Bangladeshis on Assam which would never be acceptable. “The Narendra Modi led-BJP government thinks that Assam is a dumping ground, a dustbin. But we will never allow them to do so. All illegal migrants who entered Assam after March 25, 1971 should leave Assam,” said the AASU leaders. “The steps taken by the Modi government will paralyze the indigenous people of Assam socially, economically and educationally. The AASU will never allow Assam to bear the burden of minority refugees,” they added.

In the programme, former AASU leader and noted journalist Dwipen Dutta, AASU central committee assistant general secretary Monuwar Hussain, organizing secretary Raju Phukan, AASU Golaghat district committee adviser Ratul Dutta, secretary Abhibartan Goswami, publicity secretary Santanu Dutta, Imdadul Hussain, Jadumoni Gogoi, Prasanta Das, Madurjya Goswami, Mamud Ali and Dipak Gogoi were present in the protest.
