Families of Assam Agitation martyrs opposes citizenship to religious minorities

Sunday December 11th, 2016
The family members of Assam Agitation martyrs have opposed the Centre's decision to grant citizenship to religious minorities from Bangladesh.
Chandra Kanta Talukdar, brother of Assam Agitation martyr Khargeswar Talukdar opposing the Centre’s move to grant citizenship to Hindu Bangladeshis, said, “If the government grants citizenship to Hindu Bangladeshis, the sacrifice of the Assam Agitation martyrs will go in vain.”
By sustaining the non-violent Assam Agitation for six long years, the people of Assam have proved before the world how tenacious they could be in the greater interest. 
The Assam Agitation against illegal migration was not only an agitation to protect the identity and rights of indigenous people of Assam, but also a movement to protect sovereignty of the country against the onslaught of illegal migrants on the country in this Northeast corner.
The agitation started in 1979 and ended after the signing of the Assam Accord between the then prime minister Rajiv Gandhi and AASU in 1985.
Meanwhile, the AASU on Saturday wanted to know what steps the BJP-led government had taken to detect and deport the Bangladeshi infiltrators on the basis of the Assam Accord.
