Situation tense in Rowta; admn for more police forces

Tension still runs at Rowta in Udalguri district of lower Assam two days after the sporadic incidents of violence that left one dead and twenty others injured. More than 3000 people mostly Bodos are camping at the school and college buildings in Udalguri who have left home fearing attack on Wednesday.

According to information, the situation is under control but the BTAD administration is asking for more police forces to deal with the situation firmly.

Notably, the clash took place on Wednesday during a 12 hour Assam bandh call by a Muslim organisation when some supporters were trying to forcibly close some shops in the area. One Ajit Rabha who was injured in the clash died on Thursday.

It's sure that one day Assam will be a part of Bangladesh. Because of our political system, this is happening. I feel, we are responsible for that. CM is also a Assamese but because of vote bank and power, he totally turned the issue.

If the Bodos had to leave Rowta (which is their stronghold) and take shelter in Udalguri, imagine what has happened to Assam. It shows that the Bangladeshis are there in Rowta in full strength, it's time Assam Govt, AASU wakes up and save Assam.
