Ahead of PM Modi's Kaziranga visit, CAA protest led by opposition

Guwahati: As anticipation mounts for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s upcoming visit to Kaziranga, a coalition of 16 opposition parties is leading the charge against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) in Assam.
Speaking to reporters, Sivasagar MLA Akhil Gogoi highlighted the importance of the Prime Minister’s visit and said that he should emphasize addressing the concerns of Assamese citizens regarding the CAA.
“Prime Minister Modi, coming to Assam, give us words and assurances that the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, or CAA, will not be implemented in Assam,” Gogoi said.

Highlighting the potential threat to Assamese culture and identity posed by the CAA, Gogoi asserted, “Without Assamese culture, language, tradition – we will never ever allow foreigners to be in Assam.” He called on PM Modi to heed the demands of the 16 opposition parties and refrain from enforcing the controversial legislation in Assam.

As anticipation mounted for PM Modi’s visit to Kaziranga, Gogoi highlighted the clarity of their demand: “Do not implement CAA in Assam.” He warned of widespread opposition should the BJP government proceed with its plans, stating, “If it is done or about to get implemented, the entire Assam will be compelled to protest against the BJP government.”

Accusing the BJP government of inciting violence and stifling dissent, Gogoi criticized the perceived authoritarian tactics employed by Assam’s Director General of Police (DGP) GP Singh. “There is no democracy in Assam; there is dictatorship,” Gogoi alleged, urging authorities to refrain from intimidation tactics.
