AASU, ABSU flay govt failure to control communal riot

The All Assam Students Union and All Bodo Students Union has accused the Gogoi government for its failure to ensure the identity of the indigenous people of Assam.

Addressing a press conference at the Swahid Nyash Bhawan, the student leaders termed the Udalguri and Darrang violence as a case of administrative failure. They have alleged that the Bangladeshi immigrants are going all out against the indigenous people.

AASU adviser Dr. Samujjal Bhattacharya expressed grave concern over the feeling insecurity that grips in the minds of the the indigenous people and blamed the Gogoi government for not only remaining indifferent to the situation but also for taking sides with the Bangladeshi settlers and fundamentalist forces.

ABSU president Rwngwra Narzary said the communal flare-up in Udalguri and its neighbouring districts has now become a battle between Bangladeshis and the indigenous people.

AASU president Sankar Prasad Rai called it an unfortunate incident while general secretary Tapan Kumar Gogoi lambasted Assam Chief Minister and asked him to resign.

Both AASU and ABSU on Monday, in a joint memorandum, have urged governor S C Mathur to step in to bring the situation under control.

Its very disgusting to know and hear that the people of Assam especially the Bodos are becoming roofless in their own land. Its totally embarrassing and disappointing to see the recent developments taking place in Assam, particularly in the districts of Udalguri and Darrang in the BTAD. It shows how much our leaders and people are true to their land and their rights of being an indigenous people of the land.The word indigenous is totally getting lost day by day and people are not aware the fact that they do not belong to the land anymore. I wonder if the original people of Assam are still alive,if so where are they? It's a sad story to hear that the ruler of BTAD like Mr.Hagrama Mohilary and his loyal colleagues are playing a blame game,when the people of the land need their help and support in this hour of crisis,they are sitting in the hot seat and having the last laugh to see their own people die like slaves in the hands of the great and powerful Bangladeshis as Mr. Mohillary thinks. He thinks that he cannot run the BTAD without the presence of Bangladeshis. And our honourable Mr.Gogoi cannot eat, drink and sleep without helping the Bangladeshis. He is a fool who no longer knows his identity and where he belongs just for the sake of that tiny Dispur Seat. Thanks Mr.Gogoi and Mr.Mohillary for the great heart that you possess, for you can take your heart and kindness to Bangladesh too in spite of the crisis in Assam. They are so shrewd and talented politicians that they can run a parallel Bangladeshi government in Assam.You are the birds of same feather who can tackle the crisis of Assam with the help of the Bangladeshis. The history of Assam will never justify if the Bangladeshis are allowed to flock so freely.
