Congress to start 2nd phase of anti-CAA march from today

The 'padyatra' will begin from Behali in Sonitpur and conclude in Nalbari on February 20. "We do not accept this Act. This is highly communal and anti-Assam. Our movement will continue till the CAA is repealed," Assam Pradesh Congress Committee President Ripun Bora told PTI.

Opposition Congress announced it would start its second phase of 'Padyatra' (march) against the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Act across the north bank of Brahmaputra from today.

The 'padyatra' will begin from Behali in Sonitpur and conclude in Nalbari on February 20. "We do not accept this Act. This is highly communal and anti-Assam. Our movement will continue till the CAA is repealed," Assam Pradesh Congress Committee President Ripun Bora told PTI.

Bora, also a Rajya Sabha MP, said if the Congress is voted to power in Assam in 2021 Assembly elections, then it will pressurise the Centre to revoke all the citizenships that will be granted through this law in this period.
