Guwahati, Nov 6 (UNI) The All Assam Tea Tribe Students' Association (AATTSA) today called off its indefinite oil blockade in Assam's Dibrugarh district after the Deputy Commissioner (DC) invited them for discussion to resolve their demands.

The AATTSA had called for blockade in Oil India Limited's (OIL) Dikow collecting station, about 15 km from Dibrugarh town, against the non-recruitment of tea tribe youths by the oil giant and neglect of infrastructural development projects in the adjoining areas.
