AASU stages mass protest rally at Jorhat

By Correspondent

JORHAT, Sept 13 � More than 15,000 people led by All Assam Students� Union rocked Jorhat town today in protest against the government�s role in dealing with several burning questions of the State.

Among the issues, the Indo-Bangla land swapping pact, the inter-State border disputes between Assam and its neighbouring States, protection of Majuli, mega dam project in Assam were highlighted.

The students� body also sent memorandum addressed to the President of India and the Prime Minister of India via Jorhat deputy commissioner here.

Dr Samujjal Kumar Bhattacharyya, adviser, AASU inaugurating the mass agitation programme at the Jorhat Sport�s Association playground said that Assam Chief minister Tarun Gogoi did not have the right to hand over Assam�s land to the neighbouring country Bangladesh without the consent of the people of Assam.

He further said that AASU had been opposing the land swapping pact which tore off the age-old geographical integrity of Assam. He also pointed out the forthcoming danger to the entire valley of Assam if the mega dam project is carried out in the northern bank of Brahamaputra.

He also vehemently criticised the inactivity of both the Assam government and the Central government for not taking any concrete step to solve the border disputes among the States of NE region.

It is for this reason, the Nagas encroached the forest lands in the three reserve forests of Assam, namely Dissoi, Dissoi Valley and Tiruhills.

He further said that Majuli is now in a pathetic state due to the flood and erosion which could have been prevented by the timely and proper action taken by Brahamaputra Board.

Various non-political organisations of Jorhat, students of various educational institutes joined spontaneously in the rally. The procession went through Jorhat town in the busy KB road, Garh Ali and AT road. Then, it carried out a demonstration in front of the deputy commissioner�s office here. Jorhat Deputy Commissioner RC Jain received the memorandum from the AASU leaders.

AASU also gave a memo to Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi demanding immediate solution of the artificial flood in Jorhat town and erosion in the nearby villages of Brahamaputra in Jorhat district.
