The central government will formulate the rules of CCA before the announcement of the polls dates for Lok Sabha. Various parties and organizations have said that there will be a strong movement to protect the state’s history and culture.

On the other hand, the police are leaving no stone unturned to prevent any type of agitation in the state. Since Friday, the entire city of Guwahati has been shrouded in heavy security.

The newly appointed commando force patrolled Dispur this morning. The superintendents of police of each district have been instructed to tighten the security arrangement.

Police will take extreme action to deal with the CAA protestors, according to reliable sources.

Assam DGP G P Singh wrote on his X handle, Some people have spoken about right to protest, a lot of people have spoken about dangerous movements. I want to refresh the memory of people with what such words led to in December 2019. Vandalism & arson, including at our revered Srimanta Sankardev Kalashetra.

Assam Police would not let the same happen in 2024. As Director General of Police & Head of Police Force, it’s my duty to make people aware of the situation, he further wrote.

Meanwhile, the Asom Jatiya Parishad claimed that their party workers were called to the police station and were asked to sign the bond that they will not protest against CAA.

A day earlier, chief minister Himanta Biswa Sharma said that the parties concerned can go to the Supreme Court if they have objections to this law without starting an anti-CAA movement in the state.

However, he dismissed the possibility of a strong movement against CAA in the state.

Meanwhile, the chief of Asom Jatiya Parishad, Lurinjyoti Gogoi said, We have entered into a state of war to protect our culture and heritage. Police cannot intimidate our party workers by issuing veiled threats.
