The Assam University should surely open the Assamese Department in it's main campus. Along with that AXX should rais demands for Bengali Department in Dibrugarh and Tezpur University, if it really want to prove that the organisation is not for only Assamese , but of all the resident of the state.

AXX should make themselves liberal towards all sections of the society but it is sad that even after 60 years of independence they are yet to open their heart for other languages. I doubt they will even make any pro bengali language statement. Will they ?
