NAHARKATIA: Duliajan and Bhadoi units of All Tai Ahom Students’ Union, Sadou Asom Muttock Yuva Chatra Sanmilan, Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti, All Assam Tea Tribes Students’ Association, Anti-Corruption Youth Power, All Assam Minority Students’ Union, Tai Ahom Yuva Parishad, Bir Lachit Sena, AASAA and many other women organizations organized ‘Ranahungkaar’ at the Duliajan Bihu Auditorium on Sunday. Over thousands of people from every walk of life vowed to oppose the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
General secretary of Dibrugarh University Post Graduate Students’ Union, Rahul Chetry said, “If someone has been protesting against CAA with a hidden agenda of becoming a politician then our student fraternity will not accept him. One has to protest for the sentiment of Assam, not to become a leader in 2021. If somebody has that intention in mind then let me clear that our student society will raise voice against that person too.”
“To express resentment against CAA, some States said that they would not implement NRC. But our standpoint is different here. We have made it clear that we want implementation of NRC on the basis of base year 1971. Here in Assam, our fight is not against any Hindu or Muslim. We are protesting against CAA because we want the protection of Assamese language and culture,” he added.
The young student leader and a strong face of the anti-CAA said that the student fraternity of Dibrugarh University wanted to view this protest as a protest of the people, not a protest of a particular organization.
‘Ranahungkaar’, the protest organized to show harmony of the artiste fraternity against CAA, was joined by Kusum Kailash, Rajib Sadiya, Madhab Ranjan, Ridip Rangkit, Ramen Danah, Bir Kumar Limbu, Rajdeep Chetia and other dignitaries. The ‘Ranahungkaar’ programme began with a Diha Naam on CAA.
