ATSU bandh total in Morigaon

Normal life came to a grinding halt in four districts following the 24-hour bandh call by the All Tiwa Students Union which ended on Saturday evening. The bandh call was given to demand immediate election in six Tiwa Autonomous Council constituencies in Kamrup (Metro) district. The impact of the bandh call was total in Morigaon district only. The other three districts -- Nagaon, Karbi Anglong an Dimasao - the bandh had partial effect on life. Mostly in Morigaon district, shops, business establishments and banks remained closed, while vehicles kept off the roads and National Highway 37. The day being a fourth Saturday of the month, state and central government offices remained closed, while educational institutions are on winter vacation. The Hindustan Paper Corporation Mill at Jagiroad was functioning normally with CISF personnel escorting the employees to their work place.
