Beltola violence triggers political blamegame in Delhi

A full circle political blamegame centring around the Beltola violence is being hijacked to New Delhi to get more colour.

The political leaders hailing from Jharkhand have already reached the capital saying the Adivasi people are besetted with a plethora of problems and that the ruling clique, mostly the Congress party is responsible for these state of affairs.

And the state leaders? They are not laging behind. Former Chief Minister and the lone legislator from the Pragatisheel Asom Gana Parishad Prafulla Kumar Mahanta is camping here.

Not only that, the MLA from Kaliabor, being indicted in the secret killing cases by the K N Saikia Commission, has called on President Pratibha Patil and home minister Shivraj Patil and demanded an impartial probe in the mob violence.

Mr Mahanta apprehended that the Manisena Singh Commission may not be an impartial. He further demanded Mer Gogoi’s resignation saying he holds the home portfolio.

On the otherhand, Asom Gana Parishad heavyweights including president Brindabon Goswami are gathering here to stage dharna on Monday.

The central Congress leaders are also formulating strategies to face the short but crucial debate on Assam violence on Monday.
