Seismic survey on the Brahmaputra

OIL's proposed seismic survey on the river Brahmaputra could hit a major roadblock with as many as 10 organisations getting ready to oppose the move tooth and nail. The leading protester Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad has already threatened to intensify the strike if the OIL authorities proceed further with this move. According to them, it's a dangerous move for more than 39 lakh people if the OIL boasts of feeding 350 people. The Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad is joined by Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti, All Assam Tai Ahom Students Union, Moran Students Union, Tai Ahom Yuva Parishad, Yugi Students Association, Takam Mising Kebang, Unemployed Association and Muttock Yuva Chatra Sanmilan. They will demand intervention from the President of India, Prime Minister, Governor and Chief Minister opposing this dangerous seismic survey on the Brahmaputra.
