GUWAHATI, Nov 28 - Members of the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) today ended their nine-day padayatra (foot march) that started from Kaki in Nagaon district on November 20, demanding an end to communal politics in the country. The padayatra ended in front of the Raj Bhawan here.
The Samiti sent two memorandums to the President and Prime Minister through the representative of the State Governor, demanding steps to bring an end to communal politics in the country. It also opposed any move to �saffronise� textbooks.
The Samiti expressed serious resentment over the failure of the Central Government to check the abnormal rise in the prices of essential commodities and immediate steps to roll back the latest decision of the Central Government to open 15 sectors of the country for Foreign Direct Investment.
It also demanded immediate revocation of the decisions to construct mega dam projects in Bhutan and Arunachal Pradesh. Moreover, it said the construction of the Lower Subansiri Hydroelectric Project should not be resumed. It opposed the withdrawal of the Special Category State status of Assam and demanded immediate release of the State�s legitimate dues.
The KMSS padayatra between Khanapara and Raj Bhawan today led to a massive traffic chaos in the city.
