|CM trying to demean anti-CAA stir, says AJYCP|
GUWAHATI, Dec 20 - Sharply reacting to Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal’s statement on the impact of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 on Assam, the Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chhatra Parishad (AJYCP) today said that the Chief Minister is denying the ground realities and trying to demean the public movement against the contentious Act.
“At his press conference, the Chief Minister said the protesters were giving a wrong perspective of the CAA to mislead the people. When the people of the entire State, including the academicians, legal experts, students and intellectuals are terming it as against the interests of the indigenous people, the Chief Minister and other BJP leaders are trying to demean their concerns through unfounded arguments,” AJYCP president Rana Pratap Barua and general secretary Palash Changmai said.
“Arguing that the CAA does not support the entry of new illegal migrants, the CM clearly indicated that he was ready to legalise the status of illegal migrants already staying in Assam,” they stated.
