Govt claim stands exposed: Mahanta

The Assam government’s repeated denial of the presence of fundamentalist forces in the state has proved a wrong one with the police arresting an ISI kingpin in the city on Saturday.

Speaking to a private TV channel, former Assam Chief Ministerand Pragatisheel Asom Gana Parishad president Prafulla Kumar Mahanta has said the arrest has once again proved the utter failure of the Tarun Government’s failure on the law and order front.

Mr Mahanta said ISI and other fundamentalist forces are still at work to foment trouble in the north eastern region due to a frail and weak law and order situation in the state. "Its the failure of the of the state intelligence agencies is as clear as broad day light," he sad.

The former Chief Minister further alleged that ISI and other fundamentalist forces have been camping in the many places of Assam aiming at striking in the state with sabotage plan.
