Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) of Bajali, Pathshala, took to the streets on Friday to renew their protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) of 2019. Along with the protests, the students’ body paid tributes to the five martyrs who lost their lives in the protests last year.
Family members of Abdul Alim, one of the victims of the protests, also participated in Friday’s agitation. The students’ body has warned that the protests against CAA will intensify in days to come.
“In no way are we going to accept the disruptive law and we will never let the spilled blood of the youth go to waste,” said the members of AJYCP- Bajali.
The protest on Friday also voiced demand for the release of Akhil Gogoi, leader of the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti, who was arrested last year on December 12 as a preventive measure against the anti-CAA protests and violence that raged at several places in the state.
Gogoi’s case was later handed over to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), which filed a charge sheet against him on June 29, 2020, for allegedly conspiring with the CPI (Maoist) group for commissioning of alleged terrorist acts.
