AASU president Dipanka Kumar th and general secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi stated that 31 years will be completed tomorrow since the signing of the historic Assam Accord. The AASU leaders said not only illegal Bangladeshis have made the State their home, but nowadays fundamentalist and jehadi activities have increased manifold, threatening the sovereignty of the country and identity of the indigenous people. The students body again stated that the problem of illegal foreigners in Assam can only be solved if the Assam Accord is implemented in letter and spirit.
