All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) activists today (Jan 29) staged a statewide highway blockade opposing the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill and in protest against the attack on its activists at Nalbari.
AASU activists blocked highways across the State for one hour from 12 noon.
Protesting activists of the students’ body chagrined Nalbari police over the incident that took place on Sunday when a scuffle broke out between AASU and BJP activists. The AASU alleged several of its members were attacked and assaulted, allegedly by BJP workers.
The protesting AASU activists also flayed the government for going ahead with the citizenship bill and claimed that the movement against the legislation will only get stronger in coming days if the government goes ahead with the bill.
