TINSUKIA: Braving chilling weather and drizzling, more than 5000 people from across the Tinsukia district gathered at ITI Field here on Friday for ‘mass uproar’ to register their protest against Citizenship (Amendment) Act 2019. Organised jointly by All Tinsukia District Students’ Union (AASU) and All Assam Mottock Yuba-Chatra Sanmilan, the sit-in programme was addressed by Lurinjyoti Gogoi, general secretary of AASU, Rana Pratap Baruah and Dharani Gohain, president and secretary of AAMYCP respectively besides others. Speakers vent their ire on State BJP leaders.
“Sarbananda Sonowal is an actor par excellence, enacted several dramas in course of his career from AASU to Mahanayak to Chief Minister to traitor, he deserves to be nominated for Oscar,” said Lurinjyoti Gogoi. Sonowal has been attempting to lure with monetary incentives but his efforts would go in vein as people of Assam would give a befitting reply for his mis-endeavours, remarked Gogoi amid roaring applause from the public.
Addressing the gathering, Dharani Gohain gave a clarion call to all BJP and RSS leaders and workers to fight unitedly for the cause of Assamese people, even though belated, the people of Assam would accept them wholeheartedly irrespective of their political affiliations, remarked Gohain. The event was moderated by Samarjyoti Gohain, general secretary of Tinsukia District Students’ Union.
