AJYCP hits the streets in Margherita

MARGHERITA: AJYCP leaders and workers in Margherita hit the streets on Wednesday in protest against the move to form the greater Nagalim with the inclusion of some areas of Assam.

With banners, play cards and festoones, the protestors shouted slogans warning the government of dire consequences if Assam is forced to shed even an inch of land in the name of Nagalim.

Surojit Mohon, Tinsukia AJYCP president said since BJP came to power the government has been trying to appease the Naga people even at the cost of territorial integrity.

More than 500 activists who were participating in the procession to the SDO(CIVIL) office demanded NRC draft by December 31, 2017.
