Assam’s powerful student body All Assam Students Union has demanded Assam Accord implementation minister Dr Bhumidhar Barman’s resignation for his failure to keep his words in terms of the sealing of the porous Indo-Bangla border. Addressing a press conference on Monday, AASU leaders alleged that even after 22 years of signing of Assam Accord, the government has yet to implemented all the clauses of the Assam Accord..

They said as per the tripartite meet held in 2005, the Centre had promised the AASU to seal the Bangladesh border within March, 2007 but the government has gone back to its words till March 31, 2008.

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.
