BJP workers across the north eastern region thronged Guwahati to hear Amit Shah on Tuesday ten months before the assembly polls in Assam.

Convened at the Machkhow ITA, the meeting of the state leadership will discuss the growing activities of the party in the eight north eastern states.

The untoward incident took place when a section of bandh supporters tried to enforce bandh call by pelting stones and water bottles at some vehicles on the National Highway No 37 in Raha. A group of bandh supporters set on fire many shops at Ambagan and attacked some of the local businessmen who allegedly tried to defy the call. Protesters in large number blocked the National Highway in Raha for more than 8 hours who clashed with police after partially damaging some vehicles.
