Around 10,000 people joined Assam Jatiyabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad’s massive protest rally on Saturday in Guwahati demanding expulsion of illegal immigrants from the state. The protestors further demanded quick update of the National Register of Citizens. People of all walks of life joined the rally with slogans seeking immediate ouster of foreigners, immediate update of the NRC and slammed the state and the Centre. They also accused the government of aiding and abetting the immigrants.
The rally is amongst the many that have had been organized in the state in the last few fortnights. On September 6, the North East Students' Organisation, in association with All Assam Students' Union, held a rally in the same line to mobilise people against influx of illegal immigrants.
