The All Assam Students Union (AASU) has called a three-day mass satyagraha in all district headquarters of the state from December 16 to protest against the amended Citizenship Act.
Meanwhile, the AJYCP has also given call for a 36-hour ‘Gana Anshan’ (mass hunger strike) from 6 am on December 16 across the state, while from December 18, they will organise ‘Gaon Sabhas’ (village meetings) in all village of the state.
Mobile internet services have been suspended across Assam for the next 24 hours, officials said.
The passing of the Citizenship Bill in the Parliament has plunged the northeast, especially the states of Assam, Tripura and Meghalaya into deep chaos with locals and students hitting the streets in thousands in protest.
The indigenous people of the northeastern states are worried that the entry of these people will endanger their identity and livelihood.
