Ultimatum ends; AASU on satyagraha

AASU’s 12 hour ultimatum is over. Soobodh Biswas is still on the run 5 days after he incited the violence in Silapothat where a local AASU office was ransacked. The state’s influential student body is on a statewide Satyagraha in protest against the failure to nab the Silapothar culprit.

AASU workers in the district and sub divisional headquarters started satyagraha from morning on Friday raising doubts over the sincerity of the government to hold Biswas. AASU served the 12 hour ultimatum to the chief minister on Wednesday.
