NALBARI, Dec 18 - Disappointed with the AGP leadership for its failure in taking a bold step against the Citizenship Amendment Act, the Nalbari district committee of the AGP, has demanded resignation of three Ministers, including Atul Bora, Keshab Mahanta and Phani Bhusan Choudhury.
It may be mentioned here that several district committees of the AGP have already asked the leadership to clear their stand on the Citizenship Amendment Act. The new move from the Nalabari unit is likely to put more pressure on the AGP leadership.
Talking to this correspondent, Ananda Rajbongshi, president of the AGP, Nalbari unit, said that the people of the State have opposed the Act by way of a series of protests. Therefore, three Ministers from our party should not remain in the Sonowal Cabinet. “We want a comprehensive and a bold move from the three Ministers, who have failed to take a stand on CAA,” Rajbongshi opined.
“We do not agree with the central committee of the party as it has supported the Act. We demand that the AGP Ministers resign from their ministerial berths and withdraw support to the BJP in the State”. He also called upon the grass-root workers of the AGP to join the anti-CAA movement launched by AASU and other student organizations.
The Nalbari district committee of the AGP also staged a four-hour sit-in demonstration at the premises of party office from 10 am to 2 pm. The protesters raised slogans against the controversial Act and the BJP-led State and Union Governments.
