All Assam Students Union (AASU) on Saturday demanded complete annihilation of terrorism in the state. In a statement, the union made it clear that nothing less than crushing terrorism would satisfy them. AASU advisor Dr Samujjal K Bhattacharya said, ‘’We want complete annihilation (of terrorism). Specially those being sponsored by Islamic forces. The government is soft towards Muslim terrorists. It does not order crack down in the Char areas, which have been infested by Islamic terrorists.’’ Regarding the elections, he said none of the political parties addressed the larger issues of the state. ‘’The Congress conveniently forgot the infiltration issue as well as the ‘Assam Accord’ although the same was signed by the husband of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi. The BJP had nothing in their main manifesto and the AGP never talked about education. We do not need manifestos, which are nothing but meaningless documents. We need action plan,’’ he said. AASU urged the electorate to express their opinion and select candidates sympathetic to the genuine problems and issues of the state. AASU in fact listed infiltration, education, unemployment, flood and communal harmony as the main issues before the elections.
