The AASU has stepped up pressure on chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal.

AASU chief adviser Samujjal Bhattacharya said that the CM was duty bound to protect the interest of the indigenous people of the state.

Bhattacharya also sought to remind Sonowal that post partition when the 1st prime minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru sought land in Assam to settle refugees, Gopinath Bordoloi flatly refused to entertain any such move.

Bhattacharya said time was ripe for Sonowal to emulate Bordoloi and say no to Prime Minister Narendra Modi as far as Citizenship Amendment Bill is concerned.

He reiterated that it’s the responsibility of the chief minister to protect the interest of the indigenous people of Assam.
