War bugle against immigrants

A massive rally in Guwahati city in Assam on Saturday sounds bugle against the Bangladeshi illegal migrants and their undeclared protectors to save the nose of the indigenous lots amid an aroused din for a change in the cut off year.

Led by AASU, the protest rally was joined by thirty other organizations representing the various ethnic groups where the prominent faces of the rally in the Latasheel  Playground refused to compromise the base year to detect and deport the immigrants.

Flashing banners and festoons, around ten thousand protestors struck to 1971 as base year despite simmering demand by a number of newly born outfits to change it to 1952.

The protestors shouted slogans vehemently opposing the move to amend the Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2016 calling it a conspiracy to co exist with the non Muslim immigrants to ensure a safe passage in the stageyan pool of election.

Pouring on his hot steam of voice against the people in question and the ruling clique, AASU adviser Dr Samujjal Bhattacharya warned of dire consequences if the illegal settlers remain on the soil of Assam or not pushed back.

“Enough is enough. We won’t bear the burden of more Bangladeshi people who have been posing the last threat to our land, culture and demography.  We want these people who came after the cut off year must go back,”said Dr Bhattacharya amid a defeaning din of slogans.

The tardy and tedious process of updating the NRC also echoed with equal anger and optimism in the rally which is significant at s time when the Supreme Court is set to hear a plea challenging 1971 as the cut off date in the Assam Accord.
