AASU-AUS dharna in front of HPC mill

The All Assam Students' Union (AASU) and Asom Unnati Samaj activists staged a day-long dharna in front of Hindustan Paper Corporation Limited at Jagiroad on Tuesday demanding the repeal of the allotted lease of bamboo supply to a private individual.


The protesters further demand cancellation of transfer order of the paper mill's Chief Executive P K Bhuyan. AASU leaders alleged that Bhuyan, who was reportedly against the allotment of the bamboo supply to the private party, has been recently been transferred to Kerala. The agitators were also demanding the transfer of the HPCL headquarters from Kolkata to Assam. The two organisations have also sent a memorandum to Heavy Industries Minister Prafull Patel in this regard.
