GUWAHATI: The AASU (All Assam Students’ Union) has stated in clear terms that because of its comfortable strength in the Parliament the BJP government at the Centre cannot enforce the CAB (Citizenship Amendment Bill) on Assam and other States in the Northeast. In a statement issued to the media on Wednesday, AASU president Dipanko Kumar Nath said: “Time and again we’ve made it clear that Assam and other States in the Northeast are not dumping grounds for Bangladeshis. Because of its comfortable strength in the Parliament, the government at the Centre is ignoring the wishes and aspirations of the people of Assam and the entire Northeast. The government is out to impose the CAB on us. The cut-off year – March 24 midnight, 1971 – doesn’t discriminate between Hindus and Muslims. The Assam Accord asserts the cut-off date, without making mention of any religion. If the BJP goes ahead with imposing the CAB on Assam and the Northeast, it will have to hit the roadblock of the indigenous people of this region.”
