Don’t gag voice of protest

Voice of protest against Akhil Gogoi’s arrest seems to have been spreading nook and corner of the state.

A huge gathering in Guwahati on Tuesday demanded immediate release of the KMSS president who is under police remand in connection with the recent self immolation of a KMSS activist in Dispur.

Noted intellectual Dr Hiren Gogoi slammed the government saying that he was dead opposed to self immolation but in the same breath he said that the government is trying to gag the voice of protest against rampant corruption in public life.
