Killing self for land rights

Guwahati: Holding the Assam Government responsible for the self immolation by its activist Prabin Boro here on Monday, the KMSS has called a 12-hour Guwahati bandh on Tuesday as Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is scheduled to address a public rally here.

‘Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti’ leader Akhil Gogoi told PTI, “we have called a 12-hour bandh and will prevent, at any cost, Rahul Gandhi’s rally tomorrow. All roads leading to the venue will be blocked by us,” he said.

Boro succumbed to his injuries at the Gauhati Medical College Hospital nearly six hours after having immolated himself in front of the Secretariat suffering 100 per cent burn injuries.This sparked widespread protests by KMSS activists who blocked road and rail networks across the state. (PTI)
