Chapormukh: Calm but tense

An uneasy calm prevails in Chapormukh area in the central Assam district of Nagaon forcing the authority to keep the security forces on alert on Saturday.

The situation turned uneasy suddenly after a person belonging to a particular group alleged to have passed an uncharitable comment on the saint Sankardev to be confronted by a small team of youths who were organizing a huge rally in protest the Panigaon where a group of traders attacked give former ULFA rebels as they were raising funds to feed the flood hit people on Thursday. 

But immediate arrival of the security forces stopped the tussle from spreading in the evening. “The area has, mostly, Bangla-speaking people who have been doing business for years. Earlier, some mild tussles took place. But we want to warn them of dire consequences if they, in any way, want to confront us,” said Bijon Saikia, a Raha College student who attended the rally. 

Anupoma Kakoty, a local school teacher in the told Assam Times that tolerance is what the need of the hour. “See the people of Assam are waging a war only against a group of goons in the guise of traders. But not even a Bangla speaking person I have seen in this rally. They are keeping mum. Should not they come out?” 

The protestors in the rally solemnly vowed to fight the elements who have been trying to sabotage Assam and it's people apart from plundering the resources.
