AJYCP to get tougher

The Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) will keep mounting pressure on the government on every passing day demanding full autonomy, dual citizenship and innerline permit system.

In a press statement issued in Guwahati on Friday, AJYCP president Biraj Kumar Talukdar said they would be more aggressive this year to ensure that the demands are properly discussed both in Delhi and Dispur to act accordingly. “Never will we budge an inch from our decade old demands under any circumstances. We have fought in 2016 outlining the three demands and we would not halt in 2017 and instead we will intensify the struggle to mount more pressure on Dispur and Delhi.”

Strongly advocating full autonomy in Assam, Talukdar said that once autonomy is put in place, sustainable development would start percolate benefit to the state and its people.

“Since inception, we have been demanding full autonomy to help us grow on all fronts. We are fully prepared to negotiate with the Government. But both Centre and the state are least bothered. We won’t allow the major demand to be a thing of the past,” said the AJYCP president.

He observed that dual citizenship and innerline permit are the need of the hour for Assam and its people who are caught in immense problem of culture and identity. He said,” Has anybody heard of illegal settlers in Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh and Mizoram? No. This is because of the ILP system which forces the people in Manipur and Meghalya to raise the demand.”

Talukdar further that AJYCP has been raising these three vital demands since its inception and would be more aggressive this year to make the Government listen to the demands.
