Appeal to celebrate Independence Day

13 Aug 2009 - 3:48am | editor

We hereby appeal to the people of Assam and Northeast India to celebrate the Independence Day on 15th August to pay tributes to the patriots and martyrs who suffered and sacrificed their lives for the freedom of the Nation. It is observed that a section of separatist elements in the region have made it a habit to impose a ban on the celebration of both the Independence Day and Republic Day (of India). We must not forget that the immense sacrifice of those martyrs of Northeast who laid down their lives in the Freedom Movement. Because of their supreme sacrifice we are an independent Nation today and we have the moral duty and responsibility to pay tributes to the martyrs and salute the National Tricolour on that very special day. The Journalists’ Forum, Assam (JFA) appeals to people of Assam to celebrate the day and hoist the Tricolour in every house hold and their localities. The journalists and citizens of Guwahati are also welcome to Guwahati Press Club to participate in the flag-hoisting ceremony in it’s premises at 11 in the morning.

Indian or B’deshi!

Hardly a month is left for New Dehli and Dhaka to implement the land swap deal

If an Indian in Bangladeshi enclaves want to stay there, he or she will get Bangladeshi citizenship. If a Bangladeshi national living in Indian enclaves want to stay, they are free to get Indian citizenship.

This was more or less of what Sushma Swaraj told in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.

Moving the Constitution (One Hundred and Nineteenth Amendment) Bill, 2013 in the upper House on Wednesday morning, the external affairs minister made it plain and simple that no movement of population was necessitated by the exchange of enclaves.

The constitutional amendment bill to operationalise the agreement was introduced in the Rajya Sabha in 2013 but could not be passed due to stiff opposition.

When the Narendra Modi government came in power, the bill was again sent to the standing committee on the external affairs ministry, and a report was presented in December 2014.

The bill to operationalise the agreement with Bangladesh includes exchange of territories in Assam, West Bengal, Tripura and Meghalaya, and was cleared by the union cabinet at a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Modi on Tuesday.

Two  person were killed and over 30 others sustained injury when a powerful explosion hit a crowded place in Dibrugarh district on Sunday. The explosion took place at 7 in the evening under a truck when a round 30 people was busy with loading goods in Rajgarh town which is the main shopping point for the people.

Police officials told Assam Times that the explosion took place with a huge sound but they found it quit difficult to ascertain the nature of the blast where electricity was disrupted for several hours.  

Identified as Manilal Gupta, the local trader died on the spot while over 30 others are under going treatment at local hospital. Five critically injured people have been rushed to the Assam Medical College Hospital.

Parliamentary secretary for home Etwa Munde is on his way to the spot to assess the situation. Senior police and civil officials are monitoring the situation. Security forces have cordoned off the entire area to nab the culprits.

No outfit has so far claimed the responsibility. But the needle of suspecision points towards ULFA hardly a week before the all India DGP and IGPs’ conference in Guwahati to be opened by prime minister Narendra Modi in presence of home minister Rajnath Singh.
