A report from Silchar said that the committee of the All Cachar Karimganj Hailakandi Students' Association (ACKHSA) had threatened to launch an agitation across the Barak Valley if the state government did not revoke its decision on the academic calendar for the valley. A citizens' meeting was organised by the association to protest against the state government's decision to scrap a number of holidays from the academic calendar for Barak Valley. Members of different organisations, workers of political parties, intellectuals and educationists were present in the meeting. Rupam Nandi Purkayastha, adviser to the central committee of the association, said the government, by scrapping holidays from the academic calendar of the valley, had deeply hurt the sentiments of people and the association would not remain silent . He said earlier the number of holidays for Durga Puja used to be 20, but the state government reduced it to just four days, which was not "acceptable". He said Durga Puja was the biggest festival of Barak Valley people. He alleged that the government took the decision under the influence of the All Assam Students' Union (AASU), which wanted to establish/maintain its cultural aggression (Assamese) all over the state. Sadhan Purkayastha, general secretary of the state committee of Aamra Bangali, said protests/agitation had remained the only way out for Barak Valley to get its demand fulfilled.
