    GUWAHATI: All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) leaders – president Dipanka Kumar Nath and general secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi, both are likely to depart the union right after the union’s next conference scheduled on October this year.   

    A highly placed source claimed that the union leader duo will quit the apex students’ body of the state keeping in mind the ensuing 2021 assembly elections.

    The movement intensified against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act forced the people of Assam to think for an alternative regional political party after the Assam Gana Parishad diluted its regional characteristic being an alliance with the ruling BJP in the state. Accordingly, in an effort to capitalise the sentiment of the domicile Assamese population, the AASU itself too hinted the formation of a new regional political party several times.  

    However, blurring these speculations, the AASU leaders were still not sure of forming the new political party till Friday. “We are still with AASU. The people of Assam are our guardian, they will decide whether to form a new political party or not. AASU alone cannot decide it,” Gogoi said.

    The AASU convened its central executive meeting on Friday at the Swahid Nyas Bhawan, located at Uzanbazar, here. During the meeting, the AASU announced its conference that is scheduled to be held on October next.

    Gogoi highlighted that the meeting convened on Friday also discussed as to how the union has to deal with the movement against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, Environmental Impact Assessment 2020, flood-induced erosion, big dam and the mater related to the Clause 6 of the Assam Accord.
