Bora, who himself was associated with the AASU before entering active politics, interacted with the leaders of the students' body. In his interaction with AASU Chief Advisor Dr Samujjal Bhattacharjya, President Dipanka Kumar Nath and General Secretary Sankar Jyoti Baruah, Bora conveyed CM Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma's willingness to implement the historic Assam Accord.
As a former AASU leader, Bora expressed his happiness after meeting the AASU leadership. He assured the AASU leaders of early implementation of the Assam Accord including the provisions of the Clause 6 of the Accord.
Bora said, "Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma is very serious about implementation of the Assam Accord. The Assam Government will work closely with the AASU for the implementation of the Accord."
Meanwhile, the AASU leaders have expressed optimism over the implementation of the Assam Accord after the visit of Atul Bora to the office of the students' body.
Bhattacharjya said that it's a big development considering the fact that since the signing of the Assam Accord in 1985, for the first time an Assam Accord minister has visited the AASU office and assured implementation of the Accord. He further informed that the Assam Government would soon invite the AASU leaders for discussions on implementation of Assam Accord.
"Today is a historic day as for the first time an Assam Accord minister has visited the AASU office and assured implementation of the Accord. We are happy, but we would be much happier if these assurances see the light on the day soon," Bhattacharjya added.
