Diphu, June 8 (EMN): Under the banner of All Assam Students Union (Aasu) , the Karbi Anglong District  Committee (KADC) supported by various social organizations including  students, youth, women and literary body from different government schools of the town  took part in a protest rally against the controversial Citizenship Amendment Bill, on June 8 Friday. The procession started from Diphu Club.

General secretary, Diphu Regional Students Union (DRSU) of Aasu Shorjun Hanse said that the controversial Citizenship Amendment bill 2016 should be withdrawn by the Central government.

If the Cabinet committee of Meghalaya government could oppose the bill then why not Assam government, Hanse queried. He told to the state and Central government that Assam Accord should be implemented within time bound period. If the Assam Accord is implemented the Indigenous communities in Assam will get protection, he stated.   He also urged that the Indo-Bangla Border should be sealed as large number of illegal migrants are entering the state. A bilateral discussion between India and Banglandesh government should be held for deportation of illegal migrants to Banglandesh, he suggested.

Organisations like Karbi Students Association (KSA) Simeon Rongphar, Karbi Women Justice Forum, Karbi Lammet Amei, Diphu Masjid Samaj, Tai Ahom Cultural Society, All Dimasa Students Union, All Assam Gorkha Students Union, Karbi Anglong, Mahila Samiti and Students Youth for Justice took part in the protest rally.
