Torch rally in Namrup

Namrup: Hundreds of students in Namrup  took out a torch rally on Monday evening alleging the move for closure of the Assam Women University in Jorhat.

 Jointly organized by Namrup and Dibrugarh AASU units, rally started from AASU office near Sonari Tiniali and concluded in Sarmah Tiniali where the protestors shouted slogans warning the government not to downgrade or close down the varsity.

AASU leader Abani Kumar Gogoi said , "Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarmah has made contradictory statements. One he keeps saying that the varsity would face closure and again at time says it would be converted into a technical institute. Why is he playing with the future of the students?
  The students demanded an immediate appointment of a vice Chancellor in the varsity. They further threatened to intensify the agitation if the government refuses to listen to the voice of protest.
