Samujjal to resign as AASU adviser

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, March 22 � All Assam Students� Union (AASU) adviser Dr Samujjal Bhattacharyya would officially resign from AASU during the 16th convention of the students� body to be held at Dudhnoi, from March 23.

Bhattacharyya, along with the AASU president Sankar Prasad Rai and general secretary Tapan Gogoi, vehemently ruled out the possibility of the AASU leadership joining the BJP.

Bhattacharyya today announced his official exit from the organisation, which he had joined during the Assam movement and continued as an office-bearer since 1982. Addressing the media here, he said that he would stay away from political parties and electoral politics in future as well.

During his stint in the students� body spanning long 33 years, Bhattacharyya was the assistant general secretary of the All Guwahati Students� Union (AGSU) in 1982 and became its acting GS in 1983. He was the general secretary of AASU for three terms from 1989 to 1999 and later joined as advisor of the organization for two tenures.

Reacting to the BJP State president Siddhartha Bhattacharya�s statement about the possibility of the AASU leadership joining the BJP during the visit of party president Amit Shah, the trio warned the political party not to drag the students� body into a political controversy.

�The statement is false, fabricated and driven by political motives. We warn him against creating misunderstanding about the students� body, which is selflessly working for the State and its people,� said Sankar Prasad Rai.

Nearly 5,000 delegates from different parts of the State, representing the AASU and various other organizations, are likely to take part in the convention, apart from others. The last AASU convention was held in Moran in the year 2005.
