AAMSU demands Prez rule

The All Assam Minority Students’ Union(AAMSU) has demanded Presidents’ Rule in Assam alleging the state government’s failure to deal with the law and order situation.

In an exclusive interview with Assam Times, AAMSU  president Abdur Rahim Ahmed said that the Congress government has been failing to ensure safety and security of the common people.

He said that Presidents’ rule is only the option to ensure peace and normalcy in the state. “The rebels are running parallel government which is why the common people are forced to bear the brunt.”

He did not spare the centre saying that both Delhi and Dispur are mired in mud slinging to gain political mileage instead of taking any concrete steps to ensure normalcy.

“I do urge both governments not to do politics on the recent carnage by the militants. They should help the state restore normalcy by ensuring peace and harmony among all sections of communities,” he said.

He said that the students union and its united forum Janagostiya Aikhya Mancha will put independent candidates in all seats in the upcoming BTAD election.
