According to top sources, the chief minister reviewed the prevailing conditions following the series of violent anti-CAA protests in the state.
Briefing newspersons after the meeting, Sootea BJP MLA Padma Hazarika said that the party MLAs demanded the leadership to allay apprehensions prevalent in the minds of the indigenous people of the state.
The BJP MLAs also unanimously decided to move the state government to press the Centre for safeguarding the Assamese language even if a constitutional amendment is required.
