DULIAJAN, Nov 22 - The 17th conference of the All Assam Students� Union (AASU) concluded at Salakataki public playground here with the formation of a new executive committee of the student body for the next tenure. It also saw AASU general secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi announcing his decision to leave the State�s largest student organisation. Meanwhile, on his decision of leaving the student body, AASU chief adviser Samujjal Kumar Bhattacharya said he would have a �deep deliberation with his conscience� and then take a final decision.

Talking to The Assam Tribune today, Bhattacharya said, �I came to Duliajan having decided to leave AASU, but representatives of the student body from across the State wanted me to have a rethink over the matter.� After four eventful days of the conference, the AASU announced its 62-member executive body for the next tenure after completion of the selection meeting that went past 7 am on Sunday. The selection meeting decided to give the responsibility of the president�s post once again to Dipanka Kumar Nath, while Sankarjyoti Baruah will be the new general secretary.

After the announcement of the decision of the selection meeting held at Duliajan Club here, a cheerful environment was created among the organisation�s activists.

After the announcement of the new executive body, Sankarjyoti Baruah, a resident of Borkula village near here went to the Duliajan Kendriya Swahid Bedi to pay tribute to the four martyrs of the oil blockade movement of 1980.

Baruah vowed to once again initiate a vibrant protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act throughout the State. �The sacrifice of every Assamese for the protection of land, language and culture will not be allowed to go in vain,� he said.

He said among the upcoming plans of AASU would be a practical programme focusing on the long term educational goals for the students of the State.

Solving the big dam problem, implementation of the Assam Accord, preparation of a proper NRC, sealing of the India-Bangladesh border would also be major issues the AASU would take up, he added.

A double Masters from Dibrugarh University, Sankarjyoti has a long history of association with the AASU from the grassroots level. He was the assistant general secretary of the Duliajan unit of AASU before being given the charge of AASU central executive member in Dudhnoi conference in 2015.
