Why auction policy? AJYCP blocks rails

Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chhatra Parishad (AJYCP) activists in different parts of Assam blocked rails on Friday opposing the Centre’s move to auction 12 marginal oilfields disrupting normal train services.

With banners and festoons hundreds of protesters blocked the rails in Sivasagar, Dibrugarh, Margherita, Digboi, Jorhat and Golaghat raising slogans asking the Centre not to proceed with the deal.

The protesters further asked the Centre to roll back the move within 24 hours.
