AASU Protesters block National Highway for 1 hour
GUWAHATI: The All Assam Students Union (AASU) protesters have blocked the National Highway at Basishtha Chariali.
This highway blockade is against the use of police force against AASU members in Nalbari on Sunday. As per reports stones were pelted and AASU workers were manhandled inside the police station in Nalbari by BJP workers on Sunday.
AASU members of the Nalbari unit had waved black flags to Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal which later snowballed into a major tussl
e between AASU and BJP workers. The chief minister was in Nalbari to lay the foundation stone of Nalbari Medical College and Hospital.
The protestors have used slogans like "Joi Aai Axom", "Sarbananda Sonowal Murdabaad" and "BJP Go Back" to protest against the bill.
The road blockade has created a massive jam on the national highway and has stalled the normal traffic movement.
