After carnage its blame game: Anjali ups ante against Himanta

Its Himanta Biswa Sarma vs Anjali Daimary. The former is a powerful minister in the Tarun Gogoi cabinet while the latter is no less popular in the state.

The Bodo Women Justice Forum president Anjali Daimary is caught a grim war of words with Assam government spokesperson Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma. The war centres around the recent orgy of violence in Udalguri and Darrang districts.

The BWJF chief on Monday asked Dr Sarma further not to meddle in the internal affairs of the Bodo people. Addressing a press conference on Monday, the Bodo Women Justice Forum president hold Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma responsible for the recent carnage in Udalguri and Darrang districts.

According to her, Dr Sarma’s wife Riniki Bhuyan will be contesting from Mangaldoi in the upcoming Lok Sabha poll and the minister is trying to exploit the simmering situation.

Daimary said Hagrama Mohilary led BPF’s coalition does not mean that the Congress has no political dominance over the Bodo people.
She charged the Dr Sarma with not doing enough for the Bodos and rubbished Dr Sarma’s statement that the Bodo Women Justice Forum was never a pressure group and asked is Congress still a party of the people.

Doimary deplored that Dr Sarma is launching attack personally on her only because of being the sister of NDFB chief Ranjan Daimary.
Daimary said the minister has done precious little to uplift lakhs of Bodo people. She also called the minister anti-Bodo and asked to change this attitude.

Its is not Democracy, but 'Number-crazy' form of government in post-1947 Assam. Aristotle's remark on Democracy being the 'Govt of Fools' stands true for the state of Assam in present times. Assam is a unique example of a democratic set up where, politicians are gradually selling out the state to a neighbouring country for ministerial posts at the cost of its native people.
