Border sealing: All party team to Delhi

The day two of the Assam assembly's winter session decided to depute an all party delegation to New Delhi to put pressure on the Centre to ensure the sealing of the Indo-Bangla border.

Participating in the question hour, the Opposition members alleged that the government has not been doing enough to seal the porous portion of the Indo-Bangla border. In his reply, revenue minister Dr Bhumidhar Barman said the Assam government has been apprising the Centre of all these from time to time.

The House decided to rush an all party delegation to Delhi to be led by the Speaker. Earlier, the House discussed the plights of the refugees in Darrang and Udalguri districts who were rendered homeless at the height of the communal clash that rocked the two lower Assam districts.

The Opposition members alleged pathetic plights of the camp inmates but revenue minister Dr Bhimidhar Barman made it clear that the government has been taking necessary steps to help the camps run smoothly.
