GUWAHATI, July 7 � Members of the All Assam Students� Union (AASU) today staged satyagraha all over the State in support of their demands for a permanent solution to the aliens� issue and honouring the opinions of the experts on the issue of the Lower Subansiri Hydroelectric Power Project (LSHEP). They also sent memorandums to Prime Minister Narendra Modi through the Deputy Commissioners (DCs) of their respective districts on the demands.
According to an AASU press release, the people of the State want a solution to the problems they are facing. The Central Government led by Narendra Modi should execute the promises his party had made to the State�s people in the run-up to the Lok Sabha elections.
The student body said in its press release that the people of the State and AASU had wanted a political change in Delhi. Though the change has materialised with Modi as Prime Minister, there is no indication of any change taking place in relation to the burning problems of the State, it said.
The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) led by Modi at the Centre has not displayed any transparent approach to the issues concerning the foreign nationals and the mega dam projects. The Government has rather created a hazy situation on these issues, it alleged.
The student body said the foreign nationals� issue should be solved permanently on the basis of the Assam Accord, the proposal to relax visa norms for Bangladeshi nationals should be revoked, no Assam land should be transferred to Bangladesh and the opinions of the experts on the LSHEP should be honoured by the Government.
Members of the All Kamrup District Students� Union (AKDSU) took out a procession from the Swahid Nyas Bhawan at Uzanbazar to the office of the DC, Kamrup (Metro) as part of the programme and sent a memorandum to the Prime Minister through the DC.
