As many as 12 Opposition parties are taking out a procession in the city to the Rajbhawan demanding the immediate dismissal of the Tarun Gogoi Government and also in protest against the hike in fuel prices linking it with UPA government’s failure. The people in the procession are set to call on Assam Governor and submit before him a memorandum alleging some tainted ministers in the Gogoi cabinet.
Normal life remained partially disrupted under the impact of the 12 hours Assam bandh called by BTAD Bengali Youth Students Federation and Assam Bengali Youth Students Federation on Wednesday alleging harassment to Hindu Bengalies in the name of steps to update NRC. The bandh started from 5 in the morning where roads remained bare in some places in BTAD. Shops and markets and schools and colleges, banks and offices remained closed. The students federation alleged that the government has been creating unleashing disturbances among the Hindu Bengalies in the name of updating the NRC.
