AASU calls off ONGC bandh

The All Assam Student Union has called off the 100 hour ONGC bandh which started on Monday.

Talking to Assam Times, Sivasagar AASU leaders said that the decision was taken at their tripartite talks with ONGC and district administration on Monday.

“ONGC authorities have assured us of a slew of measures to consider our demands at an earlier date. We will again resume the tripartite talks on July 17 and therefore, we have called off the bandh till that day. If need be we will resume the strike from July 17,” said AASU leaders.

The bandh began at 9 in the morning paralyzing ONGC’s normal functionings in Nazira.

Normal gas supply for thermal power generation remained heavily disrupted on Monday.

The student body called for the 100 bandh reiterating demands for starting the state-of-the-art hospital in Rajabari, preference of local candidates in recruitment and preservation of historical monuments.
