AJYCP stages dharna against refugee move

Many AJYCP workers staged dharna in New Delhi in protest against the Centre's move on refugee status for the non Muslim Bangladeshi immigrants.

With banners and festoons in their hands, the students thronged the Jantar Mantar at 11 in the morning and shouted slogans asking the Centre not to proceed with the deal.

"Assam will have to bear the burden of lakhs of immigrants if the Centre goes with the decision," said a protester.

Another protestor said, "we won't allow the Centre to turn Assam into a dumping ground of Bangladeshi immigrants."

The protestors warned the Centre of dire consequences if the move is not stopped immediately.
