Why Assam in Nagalim? Bike rally in Tinsukia

TINSUKIA:Hundreds of bikers took out a huge rally in Tinsukia on Saturday opposing the Centre's conspiracy to include parts of Assam in the much-hyped Nagalim to appease the poll bound Naga people.

Organized by the district AASU, the rally drew no less response from the people in the town where the biking protesters shouted slogans warning the BJP-led governments' in Delhi and Dispur not to proceed further.

They further reiterated stiff resistance to the move to grant citizenship to the Hindu Bangladeshi immigrants by amending The Citizens Act,1955.

District AASU leaders Binoy Dubey and Samarjyoti Gohain said they would further mount pressure on the Centre not to ensure passage of The Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2016 in Parliament which will put the identity of the Assamese as a nation at stake
