Govt draws flak on communal riot in lower Assam

The Assam government ha come in for sharp criticism for the burning situation in Udalguri and its four neighbouring districts where as many as 60 people were killed besides leaving more than 200 injured.

An all party delegation comprising members of AGP, AGP-P, CPI, CPM, BJP and AUDF on Monday visited the riot hit areas of Udalguri and Darrang districts. However, during the visit, the delegation had to face an embarrassing situation and left the Bhakatpara refugee camp After visiting these areas, the CPM held a press conference and blamed it all on the government for this orgy of violence and demanded Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi’s resignation for this utter lawlessness.
AGP president Chandra Mohan Patowary said there is no administration in BTAD areas and there is no relief, safety and security for the inmates if the relief camps in these areas. AUDF president Badruddin Ajmal has strongly criticised the role of Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi.

The Nationalist Congress Party has strongly criticized the government for its failure to bring the situation under control. The party has alleged that they government is trying to escape the responsibility only by citing the involvement of third force in the violence.

The NCP leaders, who visited the riot hit areas on Sunday, talked to reporters on Monday and said the government is trying to cover up its failure to contain the situation in Udalguri and Darrang.

NCP Assam unit president, Dhirendra Dev Adhikary, and general secretary Akshay Rajkhowa said they have not seen even a single security personnel guarding a few refugee camps in the district.
