BONGAIGAON, March 19 - The All Koch Rajbongshi Students� Union (AKRSU) led by Pradip Ray has withdrawn the 36-hour Assam bandh called on March 21 after they received an assurance today from the State Government of holding a tripartite talk in the first week of April next. �We have withdrawn all our protest programmes and strike temporarily by honouring the Government�s talks offer. If the dialogue process fails to arrive at any fruitful conclusion, our next agitation would be violent�, Ray forewarned.
Putting stress on Kamatapur State, Ray further said, �No separate land would be allowed to be created in our historical homeland. If the Government dares to do so, we would oppose such a move tooth and nail. Bodoland has no historical and logical base unlike Kamatapur, hence all should back the latter�, claimed Gokul Barman, general secretary of the students� faction.
