#AkhilGogoi’s political journey began by rejecting the political turn the India Against Corruption campaign, led by #AnnaHazare, had taken in 2011.

He formed the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti that worked on a diverse range of issues affecting farmers and daily wagers — from public distribution system thefts and non-implementation of the rural job scheme, to land rights and fighting big dam projects.

#Breaking | Jailed KMSS leaders Bitu Sonowal + Dhaijjya Konwar have tested #Covid19 +ve inside Guwahati Central Jail where they were lodged since more than 200 days.

#AkhilGogoi & Mana Konwar's test results haven't yet been released but it is suspected that they are +ve too.
They have been continuously prompting the jail authorities about deteriorating health but there has been a very conscious delay in testing.

Konwar & Sonowal were first taken to GMCH & later to Sonapur COVID Hospital where due to lack of empty beds they were kept moving.
1200 prisioners of Guwahati central jail had protested earlier in June to decongest the jails & provide immediate medical intervention in wake of #COVID19.

Their 8-Point-demands have not yet been met.
