The Students for Democratic Rights and Secularism (SDRS) organised a convention demanding withdrawal of the CAA, NPR and the NRC at the Gandhi Bhavan here on Sunday.
Student leader presided over the convetion where Amarendra Nayak presented a draft resolution against the CAA, NPR and NRC. Retired Prof Birendra Nayak, SUCI (C) Cuttack district secretary Bishwabasu Das and students from different universities and colleges gave opinions on the resolution.
“People have lost the right of living over the years due to a depleting economy and weak political system. The country’s economic situation has worsened since introduction of the GST and the demonetization by the BJP Government at the Centre,” alleged the speakers.
No new industry has been set up. Prices of essential commodities have soared. Farmers are committing suicide. Students are being deprived of education due to rise in fees. The Government has hatched a conspiracy to divert people’s attention by executing anti-democratic NRC, CAA and NPR entities, alleged speakers further.
