By staff reporter

GUWAHATI, Sept 17 � Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today faced black flag demonstration by the All Assam Students� Union (AASU) immediately after his arrival at the Lokapriya Gopinath Bordoloi around 1 pm today after a 13-day foreign tour.

Hundreds of members of the AASU staged demonstration in front of the Gauhati University since morning protesting the Indo-Bangla land swap deal. The AASU members shouted slogans as the Chief Minister�s cavalcade passed though the route.

PTI adds: As the Chief Minister�s convoy passed the university area, the demonstrators waved black flags and shouted slogans accusing Gogoi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of �gifting� Assam�s land to Bangladesh by signing the land pact during their recent visit there.

Slogans against Tarun Gogoi and the Prime Minister, who represents Assam in the Rajya Sabha, rent the air as Gogoi�s convoy drove past the area to his official residence at Koinadhara area here.

Heavy security arrangements were made with police and paramilitary personnel lining up on both sides of the road to prevent demonstrators from blocking the road.

Riot vans were also kept ready as AASU members, students of the University and the law college there gathered to block the road.

AASU leaders said they would continue with their protest against �the giving away of Assam�s land to Bangladesh and also against the construction of big dams in the State�.

Police had suggested that Gogoi use helicopter from the airport to his residence but he chose to travel by road.

Gogoi was returning from Delhi after being away for his visits to Bangladesh, Spain and Belgium.
