Assam hit by strike

Times of India

In the last three days just about every district of Assam saw protests and street processions led by the All Assam Students Association (AASU), reports the Times of India from Guwahati.
On Saturday, the 12-hour state bandh called by AJYCP and 13 other indigenous groups evoked a strong response.
Barring Barak Valley in southern Assam, where people defied the bandh call, life came to a halt in most parts of the state. Upper Assam districts were the worst-hit.
The bandh was called in protest against the Centre’s decision to provide shelter to religious minorities from Bangladesh and Pakistan who had fled their countries as a result of persecution.
Business establishments and educational institutions across the state remained closed on Saturday. In capital Guwahati, streets wore a deserted look between 5am and 5pm. While bandh supporters threw stones at government buses in different parts of the city, train and air services remained unaffected.
Police detained 25 AJYCP activists from Charaideu and four from Sivasagar in Sivasagar district in Upper Assam.
In Dibrugarh, all educational institutions and business establishments remained closed.
