GUWAHATI, March 3 - Students of Cotton College today burnt the effigy of Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and the dummy of the Cotton University Bill, 2017, which was placed before the State Assembly yesterday, at a protest programme organised by the Cotton College Union Society (CCUS).

According to Jintu Thakuria, general secretary of the CCUS, the students of the college burnt the effigy of the minister and the dummy of the Bill alleging that the Bill would affect the century-old heritage of the college and the academic careers of its students.

They demanded that the college should be allowed to retain its independent status and to conduct its classes right from higher secondary level to the post-graduate level without being merged with the Cotton University.

Moreover, they demanded, the Cotton University should be shifted to a separate site so that the college could run its affairs freely without facing the problem of space constraints, said the CCUS general secretary.
