I have simply not found an appropriate word in my vocabulary to hurl at Mr Debanda Konwar for his outrageous utterances. The Assamese people at large are shocked seeing his caricatures in TV channels. We could never imagine that Debanda Konwar could stoop so low; he has crossed all limits of propriety! He has not only sold his soul, but has denigrated the Assamese people as a whole. On two counts his actions are utterly condemnable. First, it is for his joining the AIUDF. Second, it is for undermining the Assamese language by calling it a second language in Assam itself. The glaring fact is that our enemies are within!
We have seen all hues of politicians in Assam, but have not found a good one! Some 20 years back, when Mr. Phali riman had visited Assam , he said, that “there are some unwanted elements in Assam politics”. There has been a sea change since then. Now it is full of unwanted elements in Assam politics.
Long back when Sri Prab Mukharjee had visited goan when he was the Fince minister of India, he delivered his lecture in Bengali in goan. It showed his respect and confidence in his mother tongue. But our Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi speaks Bengali in Dhubri and in Silchar. It shows his cowardly ture. Is Assam safe in the hands of such politicians? Can we believe in them?
Debanda Konwar has shocked everyone
There is no dearth of ‘Jokers’ in Indian politics. The latest instance is Debanda Konwar, the erstwhile Governor of Bihar/Tripura who has joined the AIUDF led by Badaruddin Ajmal. Mr Ajmal delivered a prolific lecture with perfect relevance in Assamese on the occasion of Mr Konwar joining his party. But the people were shocked when Mr Konwar started his lecture in broken Bangladeshi Bangla just to seek the favour of those people. He also did not hesitate to mention that Assamese cannot be the primary language of Assam. It is needless to mention that by his abomible modus operandi as a Governor of Bihar he has already lowered the image of Assam. Our Chief Minister is absolutely right in making him perso non-grata in the Congress, thereby rejecting him outright and this rejected person of the Congress has been welcomed with a red carpet by the AIUDF. Mr Konwar’s daughter ndita Konwar fully deserves kudos for taking a leaf out of her father’s book. Mr. Konwar would do well not to deride his own mother tongue by stooping so low. May good sense prevail over him!
