AASU activists in the district and subdivisional headquarters along with the block level are on a 10 hour hunger strike from morning to mount pressure on the government to ensure immediate distribution of textbooks in all primary and high schools.

Talking to Assam Times, Raha AASU leader Mridul Hazarika said the education minister must break his silence. “He must take the responsibility. Our students must get free textbook immediately,” said Hazarika.
