NALBARI: The All Assam Students Union, which is spearheading protests against the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act, on Thursday hung effigies of Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal at twenty-two places in Nalbari district.
The students union alleged lathicharge by police on AASU protestors for waving black flags at Sonowal, a former president of the student's union when he was on way from Guwahati to Krishnaguru's ashram in Barpeta district and demanded that he take action against the force personnel.
In Nalbari town, AASU members hung Sonowal's effigy at the Harimandir Chowk, Ghograpar, Barbhag, Bahjani, Tihu, Chamata and Koithalkuchi in Nalbari district.
An AASU spokesman said on Thursday that the students union will organise a ten-hour mass hunger strike on January 6 in protest against the alleged assault on its members.
AASU also submitted a memorandum to the deputy commissioner demanding appropriate steps against police officials who were allegedly involved in the assault.
