NORTH LAKHIMPUR, Jan 1 � The Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti and its associate organisations have decided to continue with their ongoing blockade against NHPC in North Lakhimpur and Chaul Dhowa Ghat for an indefinite period after their temporary halt to the programme ended today.
This was announced by the KMSS and its associate organisations like MMK, AATASU, AADSU, AAMSU and AJYCP in North Lakhimpur today.
Earlier, these organisations had suspended their blockade against NHPC�s construction materials for two days � December 31 and January 1 � to facilitate AASU to start a similar campaighn during those two days.
However the agitating organisations made it clear that they would target only construction materials for the Gerukamukh dam and not any essential commodities.
In a separate development the All Assam Students� Union and thirteen other organisations stated that they would block NHPC�s construction materials across the state from tomorrow till January 4 in protests against the government�s �irresponsible� stand despite the general people�s opposition to NHPC�s mega dam at Gerukamukh. This announcement was made by the AASU leaders at a press meet in North Lakhimpur today.
