The students of Cotton University on Sunday gheraoed the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) office at Ambari in Guwahati. The students condemned the AGP leaders’ stand on the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB).
“People of Assam or the students of the State community would not accept the Bill in any form,” said a student of Cotton University, adding, “And leaders of AGP have to understand and respect the sentiment of people of Assam.”
It may be mentioned here that AGP leaders, after meeting Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday, indirectly supported the CAB. President of AGP, Atul Bora even went on to thank Home Minister Shah for “discussing” the CAB with the organisations and political parties of North East.
Earlier, the students of Cotton University met opposition Congress’ leaders including APCC president Ripun Bora, leader of opposition Debabrata Saikia, MP Abdul Khaleque and others in Guwahati and requested them to oppose the bill.
On the other hand, thousands of city students led by Cotton University Students’ Union (CUSU) hit the streets on Saturday evening demanding immediate scrapping of the CAB.
