GUWAHATI: Former general secretary of the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) Lurinjyoti Gogoi who has resigned from the student body at recently-concluded Duliajan session, will join the Assam Jatiya Parishad (AJP) on December 16.
Gogoi is likely to take the responsibility of president or general secretary of the newly-floated political party—AJP.
Gogoi was given a formal farewell by the AASU at Gauhati University on Thursday.
“I will carry forward this uncompromising attitude and self-esteem of an Assamese,” said an emotional Lurinjyoti Gogoi.
“I am stepping forward towards a thorny path. Escapist attitude to avoid challenges is not the characteristic of a real fighter,” he added.
On the other hand, AASU chief advisor Dr. Samujjal Bhattacharjya extended his best wishes to Gogoi.
“I congratulate Lurinjyoti Gogoi and extend my best wishes,” said Bhattacharjya.
Lurinjyoti Gogoi resigned from the AASU at the 17th session of the state’s largest student organisation at Duliajan in Dibrugarh district from November 18 to 21.
On the other hand, though before the session, Dr. Samujjal Bhattacharjya had revealed his plans to retire from the organisation, he had to change his decision at the end owing to the emotional outburst of several delegates at the selection meeting.
He sought time to take decision on his future course of action. Bhattacharjya said that he would have a ‘deep deliberation with his conscience’ to take a final decision.
Meanwhile, Dipanka Kumar Nath was given the responsibility of the AASU president again. Sankar Jyoti Baruah who hails from Duliajan was chosen for the post of general secretary.
