All out against land deal support

AGP, AJYCP and KMSS have strongly criticized Narendra Modi hours after the prime minister openly backed the Indo-Bangla land deal calling it a panacea for permanent solution to the immigration problem.

Apart from All Assam Students Union, AGP is quite disappointed with Modi who has openly supported the deal. Senior party leaders told Assam Times that Modi opposed the deal only to woo the voters in the poll rallies. "We wont allow it to happen," said an AGP leader.

AJYCP leaders also sharply criticized Narendra Modi saying that he has hardly any difference with the erstwhile government at the Centre. “Then why he made much ado about nothing? Who gave him the license to give away land to Bangladesh,” said an AJYCP leader.

KMSS is also angry with Modi. Talking to Assam Times, the peasant body leaders rued that they find it difficult to understand how the deal would benefit Assam. Talking to Assam Times a KMSS leader said, “How it is helpful for Assam? How it would help the state deport Bangladeshi immigrants? Why did not he explained? It is the prime ministers honours the sentiments of Assam and its people?”

Notably, in his address at a huge party rally in Guwahati on Sunday, Modi openly supported the deal with Bangladesh to swap land saying that it would help the state permanently get rid of the decade old immigrant problem.
