Central Assam bandh peaceful

Normal life comes to a grinding halt in central Assam on Friday following a 12 hour bandh demanding the proposed AIIMS in Raha.

Vehicles were off from the streets in Nagaon and  Morigaon districts where shops and markets, banks and offices remained closed under the impact of the bandh. The bandh is peaceful and there is no report of any untoward incident during the bandh hours.

Notably, the erstwhile Congress government proposed to set up the AIIMS campus in Raha. But the venue shave been shifted to North Guwahati much to the anger and disappointment of the central Assam districts who are taking up the case with the state government.
