At a time when the Modi-led BJP Government is set to push for the passage of the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in the winter session of Parliament, AJYCP Jorhat Unit staged out a massive protest in front of the Deputy Commissioner's Office on Friday.

The AJYCP agitators raised slogans against the BJP-led central and Assam governments for allegedly adopting an "anti-Assam policy to settle illegal Hindu migrants in the state by amending the Citizenship Bill".

Holding banners and placards against the bill, one of the demonstrators asserted, "The people of Assam cannot accept CAB as it will make the indigenous people and their language extinct with the settlement of people from other countries here".
