Focuses

According to Samujjal Bhattacharya, the prime architect of the outfit, "the Asom Sena will function as a front of the AASU and Asom Unnati Sabha. The deprivation of local youths in the matters of appointment in various departments of the governments both in New Delhi and Dipsur (Guwahati) will be a major issue to be taken up by Asom Sena. The volunteers of Asom Sena will never pursue violent activities and remain as a non-political group. Though it may adopt a radical stand in need on the issues of regional interests."[1]
