Gogoi tears apart VK Singh

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Thursday made it plain and simple that Assam won’t be allowed to an abode of Bangladeshi and Pakistani refugees a day after Union minister VK asserted that the state would have to bear the burden on minority immigrants.

In a statement released to media, Gogoi said that the Centre’s approach on the refugee issue is quite contrary to the spirit of cooperative federalism. “Barring those who have been staying in the state for a long time due to religious and other persecution, Assam would not be allowed to be overburdened,” said the chief minister.
