Guwahati: Students of Gauhati University and premier Cotton College here have collaborated to promote self ban on use of tobacco products and stop their sale within and near educational institutions. Teams of students will go to different institutions to educate the students there on imposing self ban on consumption and sale of tobacco products, students in the two institutions said. The ban will be made effective within the educational institutions campus and outside in the shops within 200 metre radius, they said. The students have come together to take the lead alleging that the government had failed to ban Gutkha or the selling of such products in and near educational institutions in the state. Tobacco products were sold next to premises of schools, colleges and universities in Guwahati and sometimes even inside campuses also, they asserted.
