Staff Reporter
 GUWAHATI, Nov 23 – The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) and 26 organisations of the ethnic groups of the State today decided to jointly hold a mass rally at North Lakhimpur town on December 3 next in support of their demands for abandoning all mega dam hydel projects and update of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) within the stipulated time-frame.

They have also demanded a white paper on the issue of supra-State.

The AASU and its ally organisations are also demanding solution to the problems of flood and erosion, physical protection to Majuli island and an end to the inter-state border dispute of the State with its neighbours.

In a joint meeting here today, the AASU and the 26 organisations also rejected the concept of the supra-State that has been floated by certain quarters to solve the vexed Naga tangle.

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi should take up the issue with Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and publish a white paper on the issue the supra-State, said the AASU and its ally organisations. They have also called for steps to permanently solve the State's border dispute with its neighbouring States.

The joint meeting of the organisations also opposed the Central Government's act of handing over Assam's land to Bangladesh. It has called upon all the political parties to oppose the act in the current session of the Parliament to defeat the move for legalizing this deed.
