The student leaders further announced a series of agitational programmes demanding Dr Bhumidhar Barman’s resignation.

Elaborating these, AASU president Sankar Prasad Ray and general secretary Tapan Gogoi said these include holding meetings on the Assam Accord implementation in all the districts and a massive public rally at Guwahati to discus the foreigners’ problem and a meeting with the representatives of all the ethnic communities on the same issue.
