No bandh call please: urges Gogoi

Amid violent bandhs chief minister Tarun Gogoi on Tuesday said that these would only complicate the situation. Talking to reporters in Guwahati he said that the time was not proper to call bandhs. “Instead of bringing calm, bandhs only increase the temper and also affect the economy,” he said. Gogoi deplored that some parties have failed to keep his request made during the all-party meeting of August 17 to refrain from any provocative statements for two months.
