AASU stir over CM�s stand on mega dams

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, July 17 � Members of the All Assam Students� Union (AASU) today hanged the effigies of Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi at public places all over the State in protest against the stand taken by the latter in favour of the mega hydel projects.

The student body said in a press release here that despite the recommendations of the expert committee, which comprised the experts from Gauhati University, Dibrugarh University and IIT, Guwahati not to go for mega hydel projects in foothill areas of the Himalayas, the Chief Minister has adopted a stand in favour of such projects in the region.

The Chief Minister blatantly surrendered the interest of the State to Delhi and mega dam lobby. The AASU has been making it clear that despite its pro-development stand, it would never lend support to any developmental project that would prove detrimental to the security and civilisation of the indigenous peoples of the State.

The need of the hour is to go for such developmental projects, including the power projects, which suit the peculiar condition of the State. But the Chief Minister with his lack of courage to uphold the cause of the indigenous peoples of the State boldly, has made himself a servile follower of Delhi. The AASU will stick to its demand for discarding all the mega hydel projects as per the suggestion of the expert committee, said the student body.

In the city, the members of the All Guwahati Students� Union (AGSU) hanged the effigies of the Chief Minister in front of Ambari Assam Textile Institute, at Ulubari Chariali, Silpukhuri, in front of Bhangagarh SB Dorah College, near Gauhati University, at Bharalumukh, Chandmari, Bamunimaidam etc places, said an AGSU press release.
