Bokajan, March 9: Along with the rest of the State, activists of All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) and several other indigenous organizations registered their protest in the hill district of Karbi Anglong condemning the Silapathar incident where NBBUSS supporters ransacked the AASU office besides thrashing its members and vandalizing the Swahid Bedi on Monday.

AASU activists continued their protest for the third consecutive day by burning tyres and staging a blockade on NH-39 demanding the unconditiol arrest of the prime accused Subodh Biswas here on Thursday. Traffic and normal life was brought to a standstill following the stir for almost an hour.

AASU members, joined by the representatives of several other organizations, initiated torch processions at Bokajan and Diphu on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively. The rallies passed through the main streets of both the towns and the activists shouted slogans for protection of the interest of the indigenous peoples of the State from exterl influx.

“The Assam Accord was the result of the sacrifices made by our 855 fellow Assamese and not a single clause will be compromised. It has to be implemented in every word and letter. We will never tolerate any exterl force trying to outrage the dignity and sentiment of the Assamese people. We demand the immediate arrest of Subodh Biswas failing which the situation may turn worse,” said Tridip Bora, AASU general secretary, Karbi Anglong.
