GUWAHATI, June 1 � The All Assam Minorities Student's Union (AAMSU) on Wednesday demanded Rs 5 lakh as compensation for the victims of the ill fated bus that met with an accident at Charabari on the Hajo-Nalbari road. The student body has insisted that the government provide Rs one lakh to the injured and replace all the wooden bridges in the State with concrete ones.
Addressing mediapersons here, president of the student body Abdur Rahim Ahmed said that the new government must not ignore the burning matters of the State including the issue of �D� voters and chaos in the education department.
�We have decided to intensify our movement as the government has been indifferent towards our long standing demand for solving the issue of �D� voters, correct NRC, photo identity for the voters and stopping harassment of genuine Indian citizens,� said Ahmed informing that the AAMSU will stage a sit-in-demonstration at Dispur Last Gate on June 6.
On the other hand, Ahmed said that the AAMSU will stage protest demonstrations on June 20 against the failure of the government to provide adequate free text books on time to the students.
