Guwahati: The influential All Assam Students Union (AASU) have re-launched their anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protest after the BJP’s decision to implement the contentious act in Assam.
AASU and the Assam Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) have launched anti-CAA protests ahead of the Assam Assembly elections to protest against the BJP’s decision to go ahead with implementing the controversial CAA.
The protest coincided with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the state today in poll-bound Assam.
Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal even termed CAA a ‘central act’ that will be implemented by all means.
The AJYCP will launch its state-wide anti-CAA protests on March 25, just two days before Assam goes for phase one of the states assembly elections.
Phase one of the Assam Assembly elections will take place on March 27.
AASU activists also took out bike rallies in different parts of the state on March 20 to protest against the act.
