Guwahati, Nov 11: Thousands of people, including students and youths, participated in a huge rally here on Tuesday, Nov 11 to protest the 30/10 serial blasts and expressed solidarity with the victims and their families.

The 'Gana Samavesh', organised by the All Assam Students Union (AASU), witnessed mass response from people of all walks of life.

Thousands of people participated in the rally spontaneously as the three-km long procession marched through the streets.

Traffic came to a standstill at the heart of the city during the afternoon hours, but people were hardly complaining as they rendered all support to this united display of anguish against the perpetrators of the blasts.

AASU leaders Dr Samujjal Kumar Bhattacharyya, Tapan Gogoi and Shanker Rai led the rally, with various clubs and women groups also participated under the AASU banner.

The state had not witnessed such massive participation in public rallies since the 'Assam Agitation' days when people used to come out in hordes spontaneously.

The entire state had been witnessing protests ever since the October 30 bombings in Guwahati, Kokrajhar, Barpeta Road and Bongaigaon which left 85 dead so far.
