The Manipur state cabinet formally approved the Suspension of Operations agreement on August 231.

    The All Assam Students Union (AASU) on August 23 called for the social boycott of the illegal migrants, even as it demanded that the draft modalities for updating the National Register of Citizens (NRC) be made public. An AASU delegation earlier met Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil in New Delhi on August 22 to discuss the implementation of the Assam Accord. The AASU also appealed to the people of state not to employ illegal Bangladeshi migrants either for domestic purpose or commercial projects2.
