GUWAHATI, Aug 30 � Assam can well stake a dubious claim as the State having the most number of bandhs and blockades. From January 1 till August 30 this year, it has witnessed as many as 23 Assam bandhs, 48 district bandhs, 65 road blockades and 13 rail blockades.

Revealing this at a press conference today, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said that the alarming incidence of bandhs and blockades was taking a heavy toll in terms of development and a congenial educational environment.

�Frequent bandhs are having an adverse impact on the State�s economic and educational fronts besides affecting work culture. It is also complicating the existing problems such as poverty, unemployment, etc.,� he said.

On the Government move to come down hard on the menace of bandhs as was announced yesterday, the Chief Minister said that the district administration had been instructed to foil bandh attempts by any organization or party.

�Henceforth the State Government will enforce the Supreme Court directive against bandhs. The administration will also take legal actions on those calling bandh calls,� he said.

On the recent violence-marred AAMSU-sponsored Assam bandh, Gogoi said that many of those who had indulged in violence were arrested. �We will not allow anyone to take the law in their hands � more so when it is done with an intent to disrupt communal harmony,� he added.
