AASU sit in at Margherita for women varsity

MARGHERITA: More than 100 AASU leaders and workers staged a 3 hour long sit in Margherita on Tuesday alleging the uncertain fate of Assam Women University.

With play cards the agitating students thronged North Margherita Rangamancha where they held the protest for three hours demanding immediate measures to restore the varsity.

Talking to www.assamtimes.org, local AASU leaders Dipankar Borgohain and Bulbul Saikia said after the BJP  Government has adopted a slew of anti people policies.

“We are fed up with the uncertain fate of Assam Women University- the only university  of the kind. But we have learnt that education minister Himanta Biswa Sharma wants to degrade the varsity into a technical institute which are opposing,”said Bulbul Saikia.

The protestors further demanded  immediate appointment of a full time Vice Chancellor failing which they threatened to intensify the agitation and that AASU would be responsible if any untoward incident takes place, said Dipankar Borgohain and Bulbul Saikia.
