GUWAHATI, August 13: Amid a terror shadow in the run-up to the Independence Day celebrations, the Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) has condemned the incident of gory attack on the common people in Tinsukia district on Friday. In a statement issued here on Saturday, AJYCP general secretary Palash Changmai said that only the common people have been bearing the brunt of the decades-old armed conflict. He said, “Armed attack on the innocent people never brings any solution to the decades-old conflict. Counter insurgency operation alone is not the key to resolve the problem.” Changmai squarely blamed it on the Government for the reign of terror in Tinsukia saying that it failed to put the security forces on alert even after the Balajan incident where 14 people were killed in militant attack at an open market. “We blame the lack of police alertness in Karbi Anglong district where a policeman died and another sustained injury as militants attacked on Rongbongway police station on Saturday,” said the AJYCP leader. The AJYCP further urged the government and the rebel outfits to come forward for talks to help the state restore an era of permanent peace.
