Students' Protests Rock Delhi

The students of Delhi woke up today against the serial blasts in Assam. A large number of students took out a protest rally in Delhi University, North Campus and traversed the whole Delhi Univesity Enclave this evening.The march started at around 4.30 pm and went infront of locations such as Kirori Mal College, Ramjus College, Hansraj College, Delhi University Faculty of Arts, Gywer Hall and the Vice Chancellor's residence. They returned to the Vivekananda Statue where they lit candles and prayed for blast victims.

This was a crowd of more than 700 students which consisted of students from all parts of India. They raised slogans in Assamese and Hindi against the Assam government and demanded peace and security at all costs. Their slogans, such as Tarun Gogi Hai Hai, Tarun Gogoi Down Down, Assam Government Wake Up, Sunor Asom Ghirai Diyok Tejor Asom Amak Nalage, underlined their traumatised state and also that they have lost faith of the current government which has so clearly failed to maintain internal security.It clearly showed the anger of the new generation and their persistent faith in peace inspite of the repeated attempts of the terrorists to break the internal fabric of the country.

Assamese all over the world is feeling the impact of the blast except for our govt. Govt. should come out with a white paper regarding the number of Bangladeshis.

The steps taken by the students and the working section of Assamese residing in Delhi and NCRis a significant effort which proves that.. though they r not in Assam..during the massacre but still feel for the same...by organising this kind of rallies in the capital.the government should wake up now its no longer a silent state if the students of Assam who are the new generation the future of Assam is no longer willing to support this kind of policies with whom the political parties are going to built the golden Assam.......this is a question every youth of Assam asking this days
