The influential All Assam Students Union (AASU) on March 24 stated that it will restart the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests in Assam after the BJP’s decision to implement the contentious act in the state.
AASU leaders said that the protests were stopped because of the pandemic but they will have to renew the agitation after the promise made by top BJP leadership.
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 on March 24 in poll-bound Assam.
The AJYCP will launch its state-wide anti-CAA protests on March 25, just two days before Assam goes for phase one of the state 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.
