The protest against the Citizenship Amendment Bill has not yet cooled down. This anti-citizenship amendment bill movement is set to go on for a period of seven days across Assam.
On the second day of the movement, leaflets were being distributed in front of Cotton State University.
The initiative has been taken up by the 60 organisations including KMSS and AJYCP who are against the amendment bill.
Around 30 lakh leaflets are to be distributed by the organisations against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016 across the state from Wednesday.
On October 27th, KMSS leader Akhil Gogoi called for a press conference at party office along with Assam Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chhatra Parishad (AJYCP) and 59 other organizations and said that a massive protest rally against the Citizenship Bill would be launched across the state on November 5th.
“On November 3, the representatives of 60 organisations will meet to discuss our future course. We will discuss our strategies and plan accordingly to take forward our fight to safeguard Assam,” Gogoi said.
Gogoi also called for a public meeting against the bill on November 4.
Earlier on October 23 over 60 organisations called for 12-hour statewide bandh against the Citizenship Bill 2016.
