GUWAHATI, Dec 22 - Freedom fighters of the State who have been resorting to an indefinite fast, called off their fast following an assurance from Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi to consider their demands sympathetically.

According to an official press release here, the Chief Minister today met the fasting members of the Assam State Freedom Fighters� Association at Dispur Last Gate and told them that the State government has always been honouring the sacrifices made by the freedom fighters and it is ever conscious of the problems they are facing.

Because of its deference to the freedom fighters, the government has raised their monthly pension to Rs 20,000 from Rs 1,500. This is higher than what governments of other states of the country are paying to the freedom fighters, Gogoi said.
