AASU back in business: Statewide agitation from August 6

The All Assam Students Union is all set to launch a statewide movement against the illegal migrants in the state. The student body leaders have urged the people to go for an economic blockade against these illegal migrants.

Addressing a press conference in the city on Saturday, the student body leaders informed that they have already finalized this movement at the recent executive body meeting. The student body announced a slew of agitation activities for detecting and deporting the illegal Bangladeshis. On August 6, they will stage state demonstration in front of the cit6y based passport office. This will be followed by the hunger strike from August 14 to 15 up to the time for hoisting the national tri-colour. On August 20, AASU will take out rallies throughout the state demanding constitutional safeguards to get rid of the Bangladeshi infiltration. On August 26, the students will be taking out procession with fire sticks in the evening.

General secretary Tapan Gogoi said,” We have already finalized a one month long agitation programme to ensure detection and deportation of the illegal Bangladeshis from the state.”

The AASU leaders have urged the people in general to be aware of the impending danger in the state’s demography. They have appealed to the people not to utilize the work of the Bangladeshi people who have intruded from across the border. They stressed an economic blockade against these workers for the sake of the indigenous people.

AASU president Sankar Prasad Roy said, “We do appeal to the people not to utilize the Bangladeshi workers.”

I have a friend studying in Australia. The daily wage of a worker is fixed at $5 by the government. If any migrant student or worker works for less than that (say, $4 or $3), the one who knows about such a deal reports to the police who takes away all the wage from the worker and imposes a huge fine on the employer. Thus they keep a check on illegal migrants working for lower wages compared to the one fixed by the Mayor of the town or city.
