Senior student leader Samujjal Bhattacharya has canceled his retirement plan from the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) and gave his consent to once again take charge as Chief Advisor of the apex student body.

“I have expressed my consent to continue my work as the chief advisor of the AASU,” Bhattacharjya told reporters on Monday in Guwahati.

He said that the decision was taken during the Duliajan convention, following the request of the delegates, as well as suggestions of the regional organisations and distinguished personalities of the state.

“The decision in this regard will be taken at the new executive meeting,” said AASU president Dipanka Kumar Nath.

Outgoing General Secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi also echoed the same saying that the new executive meeting would take a decision in accordance with the AASU constitution.

During the 17th session of the AASU in Dibrugarh district from November 18 to 21, speculations were rife about Bhattacharjya’s decision to retire from the largest student organisation of the state.

“I will retire at Duliajan conference. Earlier I wanted to retire from the AASU at Moran and Dudhnoi conferences,” Bhattacharjya said in earlier occasions.

But, Bhattacharjya had to change his decision witnessing emotional outburst of the delegates from different districts 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.

On the other hand, while Lurinjyoti Gogoi had announced his decision to leave the student body, Dipanka Kumar Nath was given the responsibility of president again. Sankar Jyoti Baruah who hails from Duliajan was chosen for the post of general secretary.

The 62-member-executive body for the next tenure took oath on Monday at Gauhati University.

President Dipanka Kumar Nath said that the AASU would continue to work for greater interests of the student community as well as the people of Assam.

Meanwhile, Lurinjyoti Gogoi said, “Though I have left the AASU, I will carry the ideals of the AASU with me.”
