LAKHIMPUR: The Lakhimpur district unit of Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) has resolved to intensify massive stir against the big river dam issue and Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 (CAA).
The newly-constituted district body of the organization adopted this crucial resolution in the maiden executive meeting held on Thursday in view of taking over charge. The meeting was organized at the office premises of the organization located in North Lakhimpur town and it commenced with newly-elected president Hiranya Dutta in the chair.
"The stir against big river dam will be extended to the five districts of North Assam, viz— Lakhimpur, Dhemaji, Majuli, Biswanath and Sonitpur as per instruction of the AJYCP central committee in order to block the turbine which is on the way from Jogighopa of Bongaigaon to Gerukamukh of Dhemaji district where the Subansiri Lower Hydroelectric Project (SLHP) is being constructed by NHPC. In this regard, the central committee has imposed responsibility upon assistant general secretary Sourabh Das to coordinate with the five district units of the organization and the due preparation for the same is almost over at present," Hiranya Dutta told media persons.
Notably, the newly-constituted Lakhimpur district unit of the organization took over the charge paying deep tribute to the five martyrs of the anti-CAA agitation- Sam Stafford, Iswar Nayak, Dwijendra Panging, Dipanjal Das and Abdul Halim. In the same meeting, the organization adopted resolution to intensify the agitation against CAA with the support of the public. The organization also paid profound homage to the two farmers who died while staging protest against the series of agricultural acts in New Delhi. Lakhimpur AJYCP, by taking another resolution, extended support to the farmers' revolt and demanded the Union Government to fix the Minimum Support Price (MSP) for the agro-products and to repeal the contentious agricultural acts.
In addition to these resolutions, the organization decided to contribute 100 units of blood to North Lakhimpur Civil Hospital blood bank by organizing a voluntary blood donation camp in association with its Kakoi Rajgarh regional unit. In the same executive body meeting, Lakhimpur AJYCP also decided to continue its struggle to resolve flood and erosion problem, Assam-Arunachal border dispute and mitigation of unemployment problem too. On the other hand, following the executive body meeting, Lakhimpur AJYCP held a get-together with the journalists of North Lakhimpur Press Club at the office premises under the management of newly-elected general secretary Debojit Deka Baruah.
