Protesters block roads, burn tyres during Assam Bandh in Kokrajhar


Kokrajhar, January 11: The Assam Bandh supporters on Friday staged a massive protest in Kokrajhar by burning tyres to block movement of vehicles in Kokrajhar.

Normal life was paralyzed in Kokrajhar and its adjoining areas during the 24-hour Assam Bandh which started from 5 am today.

The Coordination Committee of the Tribal organisations on Friday called for a 24-hour complete shutdown in Assam against the bill to grant Scheduled Tribe (ST) status to six communities of the state.

All kinds of road communication including the market, private institutions remained shut across the BTAD districts since morning.
In the meantime, the Tribal Sangha and CCTOA have demanded early cancellation of the move to grant ST status to the six communities in the state.
