Guwahati, January 8, 2019:
Students of Cotton College have decided to boycott classes because of the threat to ‘jati’, ‘mati’ and ‘bheti’ due to the implementation of the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016.
All the colleges from Sadiya to Dhubri have been requested by the student body to suspend classes. Pranjal Kalita, General Secretary of the Cotton University Students Union has condemned the BJP government’s intention to erode the identity of Assam by implementing the Bill.
