Gogoi, meanwhile, has been visited by noted activist Yogendra Yadav who came to Guwahati to meet Gogoi. Yadav also said that there is no evidence to suggest that Akhil has ever done anything ” Now Akhil Gogoi will become an akhil bharat (united India) leader”, Yadav had told Inside Northeast.

Gogoi earlier said that the time for the symbolic protest was over. Now is the time to stage massive protest against the CAA but the movement in Assam is not that strong, Gogoi said. The KMSS supremo also said that if the people won’t protest unitedly then the Assamese community will fall to its doom.
