(AASU) was today held at the Assam administrative staff
college here to discuss about the Assam accord.

Union Home ministry Navin Verma, state government`s senior
officials Jishnu Baruah and P K Choudhury and AASU advisor Dr

Talking to reporters at the end of the meeting, Verma

of the Assam accord on providing constitutional safeguards to
indigenous Assamese people.
