DOOMDOOMA: “Self-autonomy and ST status to the Morans are our legitimate rights. But vigorous agitation against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act will continue till it is withdrawn,” said Hem Baruah, assistant secretary, All Moran Students’ Union (AMSU) central committee while attending a symposium organized by AMSU Talap-Kordoiguri Regional Committee on the second day of its three-day long 13th biennial conference held at the Bir Raghav Moran Kshetra in Dhulijan village public playground on Tuesday.
The symposium on the topic ‘What is the solution of flood and erosion problem caused by Anantanala?’ was inaugurated by Sarat Bora, adviser of AMSU Talap-Kordoiguri Regional Committee, and was participated by Binod Kedia, president of Dibrugarh-Tinisukia Ban Aru Gorakhonia Pratirodh Xangrami Mancha and Bitopan Moran, assistant secretary of Axam Moran Xabha. In their speeches the speakers laid great stress on early solution of the problem because without this the cultivators would not be in a position to become self-reliant.
On the other hand, Hem Baruah, assistant secretary of AMSU, lamented that flood and erosion which was the main problem of Tinsukia and Dibrugarh districts, was not solved because of the nasty politics indulged in by the politicians. A souvenir titled Na Dhulijan Surabhi brought out under the joint editorship of Jatin Moran and Nabajyoti Moran was inaugurated by journalist and litterateur Manoranjan Moran. I
Besides holding different competitions, including quiz, the stalls on books, ethnic food and other items in the venue attracted a large number of people. On the concluding day of the conference on Wednesday, a colourful cultural procession will be brought out in the morning which will be inaugurated by Superintendent of Police of Tinsukia, Siladitya Chetia and it will be followed by open session and prize distribution meeting.
