The beginning of the winter session of the Assam Legislative Assembly has brought with it a fresh wave of protesters from across the state, hoping that the decision-makers will pay heed to their demands.
On Tuesday, people from different groups and organisations gathered in front of the Assam Secretariat stating their issues and demands from the government.
Around seven to eight groups like the Sadou Asom Asha Karmi Sanstha (ASHA), United Manipuri Association Assam (UMAA), Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU), All Assam Special Police Officer Welfare Association (AASPOWA) and others from the state gathered in front of the Secretariat to protest.
Team EastMojo’s ground report showed that despite many promises by the government, none of the demands and issues by the protesting groups got acknowledged by the government.
“Those who reside in West Assam hold the deciding votes of eight constituencies…we have urged the government on several occasions that they should keep their promises, otherwise if our demands are not fulfilled by the upcoming elections we will provide our counter to the government,” said Shafi Alom, President, Deshi Jangushti Yuva Chatra Mantra.
