AASU objects to auction

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, June 29 - Reiterating its objection to the Centre�s decision to go for auctioning of 12 oilfields in the State, the All Assam Students� Union (AASU) today said that under no circumstances would it allow privatisation of oil resources of Assam and it was also the consensus decision of the State�s people.

In a statement, the AASU said that the Centre should either entrust OIL or ONGC or the Assam Government with the job of exploration of oil in those 12 oilfields. �Assam�s interests would be best served by continuing with State ownership of its natural resources, such as oil, gas, water and other minerals,� it said.
