Guwahati: Former Assam Chief Minister and Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) leader Prafulla Kumar Mahanta on Monday, cutting across party lines, staged a sit-in demonstration with his supporters in the party at Gandhi Mandap in protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

In an apparent indication of a crack in the party, many senior party leaders, including Brindaban Goswami, Pabindra Deka, Gunin Hazarika also joined the protest, which was against the  AGP’s party line. The party is part of a Bharatiya Janata Party-led coalition government in the state.

 

Mr Mahanta came down heavily on Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying, “By taking Assamese Gamuchha, one cannot symbolise himself that he loves Assam. Modi does the same.”
