Guwahati, Aug 27 (UNI) With illegal Bangladeshis penetrating into tribal belts of Assam, the tribal students' unions today joined hands with the All Assam Students' Union (AASU) to fight the problem.
The AASU leadership held discussions with the Karbi Students' Union (KSU) and All Dimasa Students' Union (ADSU) here and resolved to fight the infiltration together.
Besides a series of agitations, the students' organisations called for economic boycott of all suspected nationals and stressed on a massive awareness drive.
The AASU had been holding a series of deliberations with students' bodies of different indigenous tribes over the infiltration issue. AASU advisor Dr Samujjal Kumar Bhattacharya told reporters after the meeting that they had decided to stage a ''Satyagrah'' in Diphu on September 13, a public meeting at Haflong on September 28 and form a human chain as a measure of protest in Guwahati on October 1. They appealed to all people not to engage any suspected national in work and hinted that the AASU was working out a module to substitute the illegal Bangladeshi workforce with indigenous people.
The students' groups criticized the political parties for lacking the will to solve the Bangladeshi infiltration issue.
