AJYCP continues protest over oilfield auction

The simmering protest over the move to auction 12 marginal oil fields in Assam refuses to die down when AJYCP blocked many oilfields in Sivasagar district disrupting the normal functionings on Wednesday. AJYCP activists in large number simultaneously blocked these oilfields in protest against the controversial move by the Narendra Modi Government.

With banners and festoons, AJYCP leaders and workers staged demonstration in a number of oilfields opposing the auction move forcing the halt of normal functionings for several hours. They further shouted slogans asking Delhi and Dispur not to go ahead.

“We are quite unhappy. The Narendra Modi Government at the Centre has downplayed the sentiments of the entire people of Assam,” said a protestor.

Another AJYCP leader who participated in the blockade said, “we do warn the government not to proceed with the deal. Otherwise, we are bound to take some hard decisions.”

The organization has been opposing the move for the last couple of weeks in the form of road blockade, rail rook where the activists have already burnt the effigies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi , petroleum minister Dharmendra Pradhan and Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal.
