Homage to martyrs

Assam observed the Martyrs Day on Saturday across the state to pay homage to the 855 martyrs of the Assam agitation.

Students and many organizations thronged the swahid alters in the morning and laid floral wreaths to pay homage to those who made supreme sacrifice in the six year long agitation to detect and deport the illegal settlers.

Public meetings and other programmes are lined up to mark the occasion. The Assam government is distributing financial assistance to the martyrs family members.
Led by AASU advisor Dr Samujjal Bhattarcharya, the student organization leaders and workers paid homage to the martyrs at the Swahid Nyash Bhawan premises in the morning.

Various organizations in Raha observed the martyrs day with a day long programme. Local AASU leaders were present in the programme who deplored that even after two decades, the Assam Accord has yet to be implemented in letter and spirit.

Reports of martyrs day are coming from Lakhimpur, Tinsukia, Dibrugarh, Dhemaji, Sivasagar, Jorhat, Golaghat, Tezpur, Nagaon, Darrang, Barrera, Dhubri, Dima Hasao, Karbi Anglong and BTAD areas,
