GUWAHATI: The State BJP office held a press conference on Monday where the spokesperson of the party Rupam Goswami said “With the resolution of preservation of Jati, Mati, Bheti the people of Assam had voted the BJP to power. With this vision in sight, the BJP has been wholeheartedly working for the overall development of Assam at large. Under the able leadership of Sarbananda Sonowal, every Assamese citizen can feel secure. In Assam, there are around 35 lakh BJP members and each member is a good Assamese and a good Indian citizen. For every individual, his mother tongue is dear to him. In the words of the Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, the Assamese people are like his own parents and to safeguard them is his prime responsibility.”
On 2 January 2019, the formation of a high-level committee has been announced to implement Clause 6 of the Assam Accord to give Constitutional safeguard to the people of Assam.
The spokesperson further added that the demographic pattern of 8 out of the 33 districts of Assam indicate that there is a huge sense of political, social and economic insecurity in the minds of the people of Assam at large. The positive fallout of the Assam Andolan, the ‘Assam Accord’ had been a challenge. In the last 33 years, a tripartite talk was held for the implementation of the Assam Accord for 17 times. Hence, the formation of the committee proves the level of commitment of the party towards successful implementation of the Assam Accord.
“It is clear that the people who had opposed the Assam Agitation and hampered the implementation of Assam Accord are now agitating against the Citizenship Amendment Bill. A protest was staged yesterday in front of the BJP Assam Pradesh office which was being led by APCC General Secretary Balika Pegu and Dhoijya Konwar of KMSS. Hence, it can be deduced that 70 organizations which are agitating against the Bill are completely being supported by the Congress. AMSU and KMSS are now a regional organization which is a force”, said Goswami.
“We wholeheartedly welcome the move by the Central Government to form the high-level committee for the implementation of Clause 6 of the Assam Accord. We welcome the committee being headed by MP Bezbaruah (IAS), Subhash Das (IAS), Nagen Saikia, Dhiren Bezbaruah, Mukunda Rajbongshi, Ramesh Borpatragohain, Rongbong Terong and one representative from AASU and one representative from the government. This committee has been formed for safeguarding the interests of the indigenous people of our state”, Goswami commented.
