But immediate arrival of the security forces stopped the tussle from spreading in the evening. “The area has, mostly, Bangla-speaking people who have been doing business for years. Earlier, some mild tussles took place. But we want to warn them of dire consequences if they, in any way, want to confront us,” said Bijon Saikia, a Raha College student who attended the rally. 

Anupoma Kakoty, a local school teacher in the told Assam Times that tolerance is what the need of the hour. “See the people of Assam are waging a war only against a group of goons in the guise of traders. But not even a Bangla speaking person I have seen in this rally. They are keeping mum. Should not they come out?” 

The protestors in the rally solemnly vowed to fight the elements who have been trying to sabotage Assam and it's people apart from plundering the resources.
