GUWAHATI: Amidst the Silpi Divas Observation across the state, the Assam State NSUI also observed the occasion and organized an anti- CAA discussion in front of the Nehru Park, Panbazaar on Friday.
The programme started with paying tribute to Rupkonwar and the five martyred during anti-CAA agitation. The leaders and members of NSUI including students took part in the programme and shared their thoughts on CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act) and the current scenario prevailing in the country through the medium of poetry, song and poster.
The Assam State NSUI alleged that the government has failed to justify the CAA. Hence they’ve started the politics of temptation or luring. The body further claimed that this government is inviting a situation of restlessness by avoiding all promise.
Addressing the gathering the general secretary of Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) Pankaj Borbora alleged that by following religious polarization the government is inviting an unstable situation. Borbora said, “The government has forcefully imposed the act upon us by taking advantage of their majority. However the two most important responsibility of the government is to provide safeguard to its public and property. Hence in both the cases the government has faced utmost failure.”
The State NSUI appealed the people who are yet to realize the outcome that the CAA may invite to come in and join the movement against CAA. The body further said that it is strongly against the GST imposed on the celebration of the national festival. The NSUI leadership said that” if the government forcefully imposes the act upon us we’re determined to throw it away.
