GUWAHATI, Oct 4: Criticizing the Tarun Gogoi-led Congress government for having failed to implement the Assam Accord in solving the problem of illegal infiltration from Bangladesh, the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) today said that it would ensure the implementation of the Accord at all costs. The students’ body further announced a slew of protest programmes all across the State to press forth their various demands.
