GOLAGHAT: The Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) Golaghat District Committee on Monday staged protest by forming human chain against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and draft Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), 2020 at Bata point of Golaghat town.
AJYCP activists shouted various slogans against the BJP government at the Centre and in the State. The president and secretary of Golaghat AJYCP, Abdul Hasim and Nikunja Medhi respectively, said that the AJYCP would never accept the controversial CAA as it threatened to destroy the identity of the indigenous people of Assam. They also demanded withdrawal of the proposed draft EIA. The draft EIA notification, 2020 is a serious threat to the environment of the north-eastern region, they said.
