GUWAHATI, Nov 16: The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) has reiterated that Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi puts hurdles in the NRC update works currently underway in the State.
In a statement issued to the press today, AASU president Dipanko Kumar th and general secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi said: “Our charges against the Chief Minister are based on facts. At a time when a section of officials of the State Revenue Department is engaged in NRC update works that are underway in the State, the department has issued a directive stating that officials not doing department’s duty will end up with their pay held up. Such a directive doesn’t augur well when the NRC update works are going on, and the Supreme Court deadline is to be met. How come a department issue such a directive without the nod of the Chief Minister?”
The AASU leaders demanded of the Chief Minister to show his sincerity by issuing a stern order and complete the NRC update works within the time stipulated by the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, the All Guwahati Students’ Union (AGSU) has resorted to agitation again demanding 100 per cent jobs for local candidates in Grade C and Grade D categories in all government departments and private companies that have offices in the city. Over 100 members of the AGSU demonstrated at Digalipukhuripar in the city from 11 am to 2 pm today in support of their demands.
