Above 3000 members of AASU (All Assam Student Union) Sivasagar District taking part in a protest rally demanding implimentation of Assam Accord within deadline on 14 Aug 2012 in Sivasagar, Assam India. Even after 27 years of signing of the accord between Indian Government and AASU it has not been implemented yet. The Assam Accord (1985) was a Memorandum of Settlement (MoS) signed between representatives of the Government of India and the leaders of the Assam Agitation in New Delhi on 15 August 1985.The accord brought an end to the Assam Agitation and paved the way for the leaders of the agitation to form a political party and form a government in the state of Assam soon after.Though the accord brought an end to the agitation, some of the key clauses are yet to be implemented, which has kept some of the issues festering.
