The decision on the series  of agitation programme was taken in a meeting of the AGP held on Sunday night with party president Atul Bora in the chair.

The regional party intends to take the agitation against the Citizenship Bill  to the nook and corner of Assam Valley with the support of the people of Assam. It maintains that the bill threatens even the existence and dignity of the historic Assam Accord.

The AGP meeting resolved that the party would leave no stone un-turned to keep the integrity of the indigenous people of the State intact.

The party apart from launching independent protests has also decided to join hands with other regional and indigenous organizations of the State in continuing with agitations against the bill.

The regional party has also decided to garner country-wide support against the citizenship bill.
