PM Modi in Assam for the first time after CAA protest started

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is visiting the state on February 7 for the first time after protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in Assam. In fact, the Bodo Peace Accord was recently signed between all four factions of the separatist organization National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB), All Bodo Students Union (Abu) and the central government in New Delhi. A public meeting is being organized on Friday in the city of Kokrajhar in western Assam in the happiness of the Bodo peace agreement, which will be reached by Prime Minister Modi.

Discussions are being held about Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Assam because before this, PM Modi withdrew from attending many programs in view of the protests happening here.
Due to these protests, the meeting of Prime Minister Modi and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Guwahati was canceled in December.

Citizenship law in Assam

At the same time, PM Modi did not even attend the opening ceremony of the third edition of the Khelo India-Youth Games held in Guwahati. However, in many areas of Assam, there is still a peaceful protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act.
All Assam Students Union (AASU) general secretary Lurin Jyoti Gogoi, who has been continuously protesting against the citizenship law, told the BBC during Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Assam, “Asu has yet to make any official opposition to PM Modi’s visit to Assam Has not decided. ”

“We want the Bodo peace-deal and a politically honorable solution to this problem to be found. Now the Bodo agreement is reached and the Prime Minister is coming to that program, if in the meantime we will protest in some way, then the people of the Bodo tribe will feel I will create a wrong feeling towards us. ”

“Apart from this, the radical forces can also provoke the Bodo people against us. We want that there should always be good coordination between all the tribes of Assam.”

Bodo Peace Agreement

Asu leader Lurin Jyoti Gogoi further said, “Actually the Prime Minister wants to come to Assam through this program but when the Bodo agreement was being signed, he was not present there at that time. PM’s intention to come here is existing in Assam To show the atmosphere is normal. ”

“So far they were not able to face the opposition in Assam. With the Bodo peace agreement, the Prime Minister is visiting Assam so that he and his people can speak in the rest of the country that Assam is now completely peaceful and here There is no movement against the citizenship law. ”
“But we will continue our movement continuously and in the coming days will take all the tribes together and agitate against this law.”
Speaking in the same sequence, Sok Sabha MP from Kokrajhar Nab Kumar Sharaniya said, “The people of Abodo Security Committee called Assam bandh on 7 February but then withdrew. It would not be right to call a bandh during this time of the Prime Minister’s visit.”

“Our people opposed the citizenship law, but our main issue in Bodoland is different. Here is the issue of Bodo and non-Bodo rights. It is being said that this agreement will bring peace in the region and demand for a separate Bodoland state Will not be carried forward. ”

“But the Prime Minister will also have to fulfill the demands of non-Bodos so that there will be no differences with the Bodos later.”

Prime Minister’s Program

In view of Prime Minister Modi’s program, the Assam government has announced a public holiday on February 7 in the four districts of Bodoland Territorial Area.

According to GP Singh, ADGP (Law and Order) of Assam Police, security arrangements have been made at four levels. During this period, no organization has been allowed to hold any rally or assembly in the area.

Vice President of Assam Pradesh BJP Vijay Kumar Gupta says, “There is no basis for the protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act. On the impulse, some people took up the placards of protest. But the law that our government has made The public is absolutely happy. ”

“The crowd that will come in the meeting of Prime Minister Modi Ji will be proof that what we are doing is doing right. Modi Ji is the Prime Minister of the country, he can visit anywhere in the interest of the people. They can visit Kokrajhar They are coming where people have left the gun and have come forward on the path of peace, it is not right to associate this program with the citizenship law. ”

Political sense

In fact, after Guwahati, eight districts of Upper Assam have seen the highest protest against the citizenship law.
Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal also hails from Upper Assam, where the BJP had won the most seats in the last assembly elections. But due to the protest, such an atmosphere has arisen in the area that the minister-MLA and BJP workers were shying away from going public. People were protesting by showing black flags to minister-leaders. Even now in many cities of Upper Assam, people have kept stickers outside their homes and shops in protest against the citizenship law.

The restlessness of state BJP leaders

Therefore, for the first time after such a situation, Prime Minister Modi is coming to address the rally in Kokrajhar, the administrative headquarters of Bodoland, which has many political meanings. The Prime Minister will reach a rally in an area of Assam which falls under the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution and where the Citizenship Amendment Act will have nothing to do.
