Rail blockade at Golaghat demanding release of Akhil Gogoi

Nearly 1200 members of Krishak Mukti Sangram Samity, Nari Mukti Sangram Samity and Brihattar Tengani Mukti Sangram Samity staged a rail blockade programme at Jamuguri, Furkating and Borpathar at Golaghat District from 11 am to 2 pm on Tuesday, demanding the immediate release of peasant leader and firebrand RTI activist Akhil Gogoi. As a result of the blockade, the movement of Janasatabdi Express, Amritsar Express and a Passenger train was disrupted at Jamuguri, Furkating and Borpathar respectively. The blockade was called off temporarily at 2 pm but the organisations have warned of more strict and severe agitation in the coming days if Akhil Gogoi is not released in the next few days.
