By Correspondent

BONGAIGAON, Dec 8 - The foot march (padayatra) kicked off by All Adivasi Students� Association of Assam (AASAA) from Dhubri on Tuesday to Sadiya in Tinsukia district, had passed through Chirang and Bongaigaon districts on the National Highway 31/C on Wednesday.

Seeking protection to their community�s constitutional rights, the students� group had undertaken this foot march.

A large population of Adivasis, in the rural areas of the State, have been deprived of pattas of their land they have been residing in. Tea labourers of the community get poor wages in the gardens, education facility is still beyond the reach of the community and they are not being enlisted as scheduled tribe by the government despite repeated demands, said the marchers.

Therefore, the students� group had taken to the street with their demands to get the full attention of the government towards their issues, AASAA president Stiphen Lakra, who was leading the march, said.

The foot march would complete 930 km on Januaray 9 in the new year at Sadiya. A group of 15 student activists has taken forward the march to the destination braving all odds. Each district unit of the students� group has prepared to help the march for its smooth progress, Lakra added.
