All Assam Students' Union (AASU) Chief Advisor Samujjal Bhattacharya has condemned the Government for the arrest of prominent RTI activist and peasant leader, Akhil Gogoi.
Speaking to mediapersons here today, Samujjal said, "We saw that he (Akhil) was tied up and taken to Court. Nobody has the right to abuse someone like that. That is indeed condemnable."
Bhattacharya also urged the Government to release Gogoi immediately. "He must be freed at one", Bhattacharya said.
At the same times, the AASU is leading protests against the Act, and their gana Satyagraha has entered its third day. "Either scrap the C(A)A, or arrest us" is the slogan of the AASU leaders, a sentiment that is being echoed by the followers of the student body, as non-violent and democratic protests are being carried out in every single district of the state, under the supervision of the AASU.
The ‘Gana Satyagraha’ of the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) has entered its 3rd day and the leaders of the students’ Union have once again started leading the people in spirit, song, and ritual. With thousands upon thousands continuing the sustained and widespread protests against the Bill-turned-Act
