GUWAHATI, May 15 - The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) and Sadou Asam Karmachari Parishad (SAKP) today announced a series of programmes throughout the State, demanding concrete measures to secure the future of the indigenous people of Assam and opposing the Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2016. In a joint meeting of the SAKP office-bearers and representatives of the student body held today at Swahid Nyas here, both the organisations decided to take up the issue of an error-free NRC in the State and register strong protest against granting citizenship to illegal migrants in the name of religion.
“The second draft of the NRC will be published on June 30 and hardly a few days are left for the verification process and other related activities. Government officers and employees are making every possible efforts to bring out an error-free NRC. We request the State government to provide adequate security to the officials and employees associated with the NRC update work in vulnerable areas,” the student body said.
As part of their joint action plan, AASU and SAKP teams will meet the Deputy Commissioners of every district, demanding an error-free NRC in the State. On May 18, both the organisations will observe ‘Prerona Diwas’ to encourage officials and workers involved with the NRC update work.
On June 4, AASU and SAKP will stage a protest demonstration in front of the Raj Bhawan against the Bill.
