GUWAHATI, Aug 13 - Remembering the martyrs of the Assam Movement on the eve of the completion of 33 years of the historic Assam Accord, the AASU will pay its tribute to those who had laid down their lives for the future of Assam.
The student body will light earthen lamps and candles at public places across the State tomorrow evening in memory of the 855 martyrs of the movement. The Accord was signed on August 15, 1985.
In a statement issued here, the student body said that as the Accord would complete its 33 years on August 15, the AASU would continue to fight for its total implementation in the State.
�Many of the main clauses, including Indo-Bangladesh border sealing, detection and deportation of the illegal migrants and deletion of their names from the voters list, constitutional and economic safeguards for the indigenous people of Assam, protection of land of tribal blocks and belts, sattras and several other such provisions still await implementation,� the AASU said.
