AJYCP hunger strike concludes

AJYCP members have ended the two days hunger strike on Saturday demanding Inner Line Permit system in the state to safeguard the interest of the indigenous people. Hundreds of AJYCP workers started the hunger strike in the morning on Friday which ended on Saturday saying that ILP is the only and best possible way to protect the indigenous people.

Talking to Assam Times, the AJYCP workers said that they won’t allow the Centre to implement the refugee notification and that they want the ILP system to be implemented. “We have been demanding the system since 1978. But the governments at the Centre and state have not been considering it. We will intensify the agitation if the government fails to step in,” said an AJYCP leader in Guwahati.
