GUWAHATI, March 17 - The All Assam Students Union (AASU) and 28 other indigenous organisations today demanded ban on the Nikhil Bharat Bangali Udbastu Samannay Samity (NIBBUS) in Assam and arrest its leader Subodh Biswas along with his aide Sahadeb Das.

A joint meeting of all the organisation held here today strongly criticised the State government for its failure to arrest the mastermind of the Silapathar incident, and asked the Sonowal government to explain its lack of prompt action on the issue.

AASU advisor Samujjal Bhattacharyya, while addressing the media said that Silapathar incident was an attack on the pride of Assamese people and the indigenous bodies won�t sit quietly till the main culprits are put behind bars.

�The protest would grow stronger in the days to come and a public protest rally would be organized on April 1 in Guwahati,� Bhattacharyya added.

A joint team would also go to New Delhi to meet Union Government representatives for discussing several contentious issues like withdrawing the proposed amendments in the Citizenship Act, ensuring the supremacy of indigenous people in Assam among others.

The joint meet also expressed its displeasure over the State Legislative Assembly�s stand in favour of the Lower Subansiri Hydro Electric Project and said that it was a one-sided decision without taking the people and the protesting organisations into confidence.

�The legislators or even the protesting organisation do not have the necessary expertise to assure people about the safety and security of the dam and its impact on the downstream people. In this regard, we have to follow the experts� recommendations. A panel comprising of national and State level experts, after conducting a ground level study and properly analysing the outcome, would give its recommendations. Moreover, talk must be held between the government and the protesting organisation, before deciding about the Lower Subansiri project,� added Bhattacharyya.
