Bhuban-Akhil issue rocks Assam Assembly

Amid a simmering political temperature Opposition Asom Gana Parishad walked out of the House in the Ninth-day of the Assam Assembly’s budget session on Friday.

An acrimonious situation was what prevailing on the floor as soon as the false allegations against independent MLA Bhuban Pegu came up after the question hour. The independent MLA from Jonai dropped a bombshell against the government on Thursday that police is in a process to implicate him along with social activist Akhil Gogoi citing link with Huji and Maoists. The AGP MLAs demand a statement. Talking to a private news channel in the sidelines of the session, Pegu dared the government to arrest him on the basis of the police inputs. The Opposition leaders were not assuaged by what the government said. Thus, amid a din the AGP MLAs staged walk out after the question hour.

Now , this is a very ominous sign for democracy. If plans are afoot to weed out promising young social activists like Akhil Gogoi and Bhuban Pegu who are for justified reasons, vocal against some of the government policies, then we are afraid, we may soon hear them to the victims of 'secret killing' or 'fake encounters' , God forbid. We expect descent politics from the peoples' representatives both in power and opposition as well as from the government agencies.

In Assam,history shows that in every time reactionary force within this society tryed to pushback the masses. But,the masses of this land never forget to move forward. Krisak Mukti Sangram Samiti may drive this society in a new horrizone.
