GUWAHATI, Oct 17 - The student community of Chandrapur area has decided to continue with their agitation against the step taken by the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) to set up a solid waste management plant on the premises of the Chandrapur Thermal Power Station.
The decision was taken during an interactive awareness meeting on the issue organised by the Chandrapur Anchalik Students� Union today. Hundreds of students from Chandrapur College and Chandrapur High School took part in the meeting.
Principal of Chandrapur College Arunima Borgohain, educationist Hiranya Kumar Deka and AASU central executive member Tutumoni Kalita, along with other AASU members, were also present at the programme.
The GMC has proposed to set up four waste management plants in four corners of Guwahati city as the National Green Tribunal has directed it to shift the Boragaon garbage dumping site at the earliest.
