Assam Health and Education minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the state government has sent written to State Election Commission to put BTC (Bodoland Territorial Council) elections on hold due to the worsening COVID situation in the state. If the elections and campaigning in BTAD (Bodoland Territorial Autonomous District) areas is not stopped then it would be very difficult for the health department to control the spread of coronavirus. The minister also spoke about the schools re-opening from Monday. Students of classes IX to XII would be allowed to attend schools only with written consent from their parents or guardian. College students have been given the facility to attend any college near their home. If a student of Cotton University in Guwahati is a resident of Tezpur then he would be allowed to attend any college in Tezpur.
