GUWAHATI: A day after the killing at Dhola in Tinsukia district by unidentified gunmen, Assam BJP president Ranjit Kumar Dass has blamed it on a political conspiracy and provocative statements being made by some individuals and parties. He has demanded a high-level inquiry into the killing to expose those behind it.

Talking to the media in Guwahati on Friday, Dass said: “The recent provocative statements by a section of individuals and parties have led to the killing. We’ve warned those making such provocative statements and asked them to stay away from making such outbursts. We’ve already asked BJP MLA Shiladitya Deb twice to stay from making provocative statements. If the doesn’t rein in on his tongue, I’ll have to move the party’s parliamentary board against him. The killing may also be aimed at preventing the coalition government in the State from going ahead with its development activities.”

Dass said: “The people of Assam have been bearing the brunt of the sins being committed by the Congress. The BJP unites, but the Congress divides. On JPC {Joint Parliamentary Committee for hearing people’s opinions on the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016} Dass said: “The Congress has been making provocative statements – following one line in the Barak Valley and another line in the Brahmaputra Valley. Barring the AASU (All Assam Students’ Union) and the AGP, not other parties and organizations have the right to speak on the JPC and the Bill.”

Meanwhile, a team of the BJP visited the spot of the killing and met the tragedy-truck families. The team comprises party general secretary Pulak Gohain, Alok Ghosh, Lakheswar Moran and Yudisthir Gogoi. They met the bereaved families and offered them the party’s heartfelt condolence.

On the Supreme Court’s ruling on five additional NRC documents, Dass said: “The State BJP was the first to oppose the curtailing the five documents in filing claims for the NRC, by the genuine Indian citizens. We’ve been described by the Congress as agents of the Bengali lobby. Fortunately the Hon’ble Supreme Court has struck down the demand of the NRC State Coordinator to reject the five documents. The State government and the BJP took lead in opposing the non-acceptance of the five documents. The Assam BJP whole heartedly welcomes the judgment of the apex court.”
