From a Correspondent
Dibrugarh, February 4: On the pre- eve of the much awaited iugural ceremony of Brahmaputra Cracker and Polymer Limited (BCPL) at Lepetkata, the district unit of Asom Andolan Samgrami Manch (AASM) has articulated their heartfelt gratitude to the former student leaders of AASU, Prafulla Kumar Mahanta, Brihgu Kumar Phukan, former Prime Minister of India, Rajiv Gandhi and the other key leaders and martyrs of Assam Agitation for their undeniable part in supporting the effecting of one of the key fundamentals of the Assam Accord.
Importantly, as the BCPL project is the optimistic upshot of the sacrifices of the martyrs and victims of the Assam Agitation, and past student leaders of AASU and former Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi as well as previous Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, and incumbent Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, the AASM through a press communiqué, while welcoming the Prime Minister, has called upon him to convey his recognition and gratitude towards the martyrs, leaders and patrons who had backed the much-hyped gas cracker project.
Both the chief conveners of AASM, Shashanka Neog and Parag Jyoti Borua, were optimistic that Prime Minister rendra Modi, on this trip to the Upper Assam district, must declare and filize the dates for implementation of his pre-Lok Sabha Election assurances.
