Tezpur, Nov 27: Indigenous people will have to enjoy supremacy in Assam, the All Assam Students' Union asserted today as it launched a scathing attack on both the Congress and the BJP for failing to resolve the vexed illegal migration issue.
Addressing a rally here pressing for implementation of the Assam Accord, AASU's chief advisor Sammujal Bhattacharya said the students' body will be compelled to unite the smaller parties to fight against the Congress and the BJP if the problems of the indigenous people are continued to be ignored.
Bhattacharya also fired salvos at Union minister Sarbanda Sonowal - once his close associate - and said the State BJP president should recall his "old commitments."
"We want results and not just tall talk," Bhattacharya said.
"During the Lok Sabha poll campaign, Prime Minister rendra Modi had said illegal migrants will have to leave the country after the BJP comes to power. Instead of fulfilling that promise, the BJP government has come up with a notification to regularize the stay of illegal migrants," he said.
The AASU leader reiterated that illegal migrants cannot be divided on religious lines and insisted that all those infiltrators who entered Assam after 1971 must be identified and deported. "For their deportation, New Delhi must sign a pact with Dhaka," he added.
