AASU protest over land swap deal
Staff Reporter
 GUWAHATI, Dec 2 – Members of the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) today staged sit-in demonstrations at the district and sub-divisional headquarters all over the State against the decision of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government at the Centre to endorse the Indo-Bangla Land Agreement.

They also demanded effective steps on the part of the seven Lok Sabha members of the BJP who represent the State in this regard.

An AASU statement here this evening said they have demanded that the land of the State proposed to be handed over to Bangladesh should be used to erect the barbed wire fencing to check illegal infiltration of the Bangla nationals to Assam.

The BJP leaders’ Lok Sabha election pledge to revoke the Indo-Bangla Land Agreement should be materialised, they demanded.

The AASU said that during the last Lok Sabha elections, the people of Assam and the AASU wanted a political change in New Delhi. The change took place with Narendra Modi assuming power as the Prime Minister of the country. Now it is the time to bring about a change in the attitude of the Central Government towards Assam, the students’ body said.

It also demanded urgent steps to repatriate the illegal Bangla migrants to their places of origin.
