The 24-hour Assam bandh called by the All Koch Rajbongshi Students Union (AKRSU) affected normal life in many districts of lower Assam and Middle Assam on Tuesday.

The protesters were demanding ST status for the Koch-Rajbongshis.

Official sources said shops, schools, business establishment and financial institutions remained closed in Morigaon and Basugaon area, while there was less traffic on the national highway in Jagirod. Train movement, however, was not affected.

“BJP leaders promised to grant ST status to us immediately if they came to power at the Centre, but has adopted delaying tactics since they came to power,” AKRSU leader said.
