GUWAHATI, July 11 � The members of the All Assam Students� Union (AASU) will form human chains all over the State tomorrow in support of their demand for completion of the construction work of the four-lane National Highway in the State on a war footing.
In a statement, the students� body stated that formation of the human chains should not be equated with road blockade programmes. It has made an appeal to all its members to ensure that the common people are not subjected to any difficulty during the implementation of the programme.
Perhaps Assam is the only State in which construction of the four-lane National Highway is allowed to be continued at such a slow pace. The authorities concerned must complete construction of the four-lane National Highway in the State within the stipulated time-frame, it asserted.
Moreover, it said, many areas of the State are excluded from the four-lane Highway project. They include the areas between Baihata Chariali and Jonai, between Chagalia and Guwahati, Nagaon and Joyrampur. These areas are to be included in the project.
Besides, construction of the four-lane Highway connecting Dima Hasao and Barak Valley should also be completed on a war footing, said the students� body.
