Gogoi, who began his hunger strike near the Ambedkar statue at Last Gate in Guwahati’s Dispur area today mentioned it to reporters.
He sat on a hunger strike protesting against the non-privatization of schools in Assam.
According to Gogoi, the state government should rethink on its decisions. The amalgamation of government-funded schools in Assam is never a good decision for the education system, he said.
The chief of Raijor Dal, Gogoi said that his party will always fight against such decisions of the state cabinet.
He further said that protests against this decision of the government will be carried out at different parts of the state. Protests will be organised in Jorhat and Sivasagar tomorrow, informed Gogoi.
There should be state-wide discussions on such decisions ahead of implementing them, Gogoi said, demanding for a dialogue on the issue.
He demanded a special session be organised involving all stakeholders in a bid to find a collective way forward.
The Sivasagar MLA also called for the introduction of a special rights act to counter such decisions of the government and demanded that the government immediately retraces on its decision in this regard.
Speaking about Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, Gogoi said, “He is a king. Whatever comes to his mind at night, he dumps it on the people of the state.”
