Dibrugarh: Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal was forced to flee from his house after All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) protesters reached the front of his residence in Dibrugarh.
As per sources, a bike rally procession protesting the Bill was headed towards the Assam Chief Minister’s Lakhkhinagar residence and the Chief Minister chose not to confront them. “The Chief Minister left, because he had a prior engagement in Jorhat, and was afraid that he would be late if he did not leave early.”
Apparently, Sonowal chose to leave early in his chopped rather than face the wrath of the AASU members, who have been continually protesting against the Bill.
It may be mentioned here that the AASU, along with 30 indigenous organizations, has launched bike protests, demanding the Government to immediately scrap the contentious Bill.
