JORHAT, Sept 19 � AASU general secretary Tapan Gogoi today visited the sites of the economic blockade at Rangajan in Golaghat district and Titabar and Mariani in Jorhat district with the delegates of the district units of the organisation from Karbi Anglong, Marigaon, Golaghat, Jorhat, Sivasagar, Dibrugarh, Tinisukia and Dhemaji districts. He also visited the victims of the Naga Police high-handedness on September 15 at Pholongoni undergoing treatment at Kushal Konwar Civil Hospital, Golaghat.
In a telephonic conversation the general secretary of AASU revealed that the State Government led by Tarun Gogoi has failed shamefully to provide security to the people of the state. The government failed to punish the guilty Naga police personnel even after four days of the incident at Pholongoni. He further said that the economic blockade would continue till the arrest of the Naga policemen involved in the incident.
Answering a question he said to this correspondent that this economic blockade was meant only to compel the Naga government to find out and punish the guilty Naga policemen. It is not against the people of the Nagaland. The Nagaland government should identify and hand over the guilty policemen to the Assam government as soon as possible. He also added that there was no bad blood between the people of Assam and Nagaland. It was only a matter which should be resolved by the governments of both the states.
Clarifying the stand of the students� body he said that the activists of AASU would continue with its blockade programme till the demand is fulfilled.
The economic blockade has crippled the transportation system to Nagaland through Assam during these days. More than 200 trucks, bound for Nagaland have been blocked in Golaghat district. Likewise the blockade continued at Titabar and Mariani too.
