AASU stir against land deal, dams

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Sept 28 � Members and supporters of the All Assam Students' Union (AASU) today observed eleven hour hunger strike in the district and sub divisional headquarters of the State demanding scrapping of the land border agreement with Bangladesh and stopping of the construction of mega dams. In Guwahati, AASU members observed fast from 6 am to 5 pm on the banks of Dighalipukhuri.

The AASU members also sent memorandum to the President of India and Prime Minister in support of their demands.

Meanwhile, in a release here today, the AASU alleged that Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi handed over Assam's land to Bangladesh without even discussing such a serious matter with anyone. The Chief Minister, by his actions, proved that he is anti-national and now he is issuing confusing statements to hide his action, the AASU said. The students' body also called upon all the political parties to oppose the land border agreement in the floor of the Parliament.

Meanwhile, a team of the North East Students' Organization (NESO), led by the chairman of the organization, Samujjal Bhattacharya left for New Delhi to meet the Prime Minister, Union Home Minister, leaders of the Opposition parties and the MPs from the North East to discuss the problems facing the region. The land border pact with Bangladesh will also figure in the discussions.
