Lurin's comment misconstrued !

A section of people of Assam fumed at a recent comment made by AASU's general secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi.

Mr. Gogoi while delivering a speech at an anti-CAA rally at Lakhimpur said that the the AASU, the Asom Sahitya Sabha and the Srimanta Shankardeva Sangha are not above the people of Assam.

This comment has created huge controversy across the state.

However, some have argued that the AASU leader did not pass any derogatory comment on the Srimanta Shankardeva Sangha, the largest socio-cultural and religious organisation of the North-east India.
