The 37th edition of Assamese almanac Kalpurush Purnanga Panjika has predicted that formation of a new political party is on the cards spearheaded by the youth of the state.
The annual publication listing consists of a set of events forthcoming in the next year and are predicted based on the influence of the celestial bodies. It consists of horoscope and other tabular data often arranged according to the calendar. The book also analyses the socio-political and economic condition of the country based on the planetary positions.
Publisher of the panjika, Ranjit Kumar Saikia, stated that although there is a possibility of a new political entity the stars suggest that they would find it hard to retain power despite gaining the limelight. He also said that the image of the incumbent BJP government is likely to improve despite protests and resentments.
Massive protests broke out in Assam including parts of Northeast after the parliament passed the Centre’s proposed Citizenship Amendment Bill now an Act last year which seeks to provide citizenship to non-Muslims who faced religious persecution in Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Sporadic violence was reported in the state which led to the death of four persons followed by total shut down of the internet and imposition of the curfew.
Situation initially started to improve in the state. However, organizations, student fraternities, citizens continued to stage cultural protests to air dissent against the “anti-Assam” law.
The predictions came after Assam saw floating of a new political party named as Asom Gana Mancha(AGM) which aimed at safeguarding the rights of indigenous people. Leader of AGM Simanta Kumar Dutta said that the party will contest in all 126 seats in the 2021 Assam elections.
Earlier the AASU had stated that they are work towards floating a new party.
Meanwhile, there is also a prediction that a state political leader is likely to meet with a major accident between June-September this year.
