|GU bus service reintroduced|
GUWAHATI, Feb 28 - The Gauhati University (GU) and the Gauhati University Law College units of the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) today hailed the step of the authorities to reintroduce a separate bus service for the GU community.
In a joint statement, the AASU units said that the step has fulfilled a long-standing demand of the GU community. The GU community has been raising this demand for the past about three years since 2013. The AASU unit also resorted to a 30-hour fast in support of this demand. The GU authorities held a series of discussion with the office-bearers of the AASU units on the issue.
The bus service, initially run by the Assam State Transport Corporation, was discontinued several years back causing serious inconvenience for the GU community. Today, it has been reintroduced following tremendous pressure from different student bodies.
