GUWAHATI, Nov 2: The BJP Assam Pradesh has distanced itself from the recent statements made by State Education and Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on the vexed issue of proposed Indian citizenship to Bangladeshi Hindus. The AIUDF, on the other hand, came down heavily on the minister for his statements on the issue.

Talking to newsmen in the city today, State BJP’s Minority Morcha president Mominul Aowal and party spokesperson Rupam Goswami said: “The recent statements on the Bangladeshi Hindu issue made by Himanta Biswa Sarma are his persol, not of the party. The statements on Bangladeshi Hindus in the city yesterday were made in his persol function, neither of the BJP nor of the government led by it in the State. The statements were purely his persol, not of the party that has an honest-to-goodness policy of ‘sabka saath, sabka vikash’. We hope, this government will pledge to provide complete security to the State and work for its development.”

Meanwhile, AIUDF president Badruddin Ajmal said in a statement issued to the press today that State Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma was making commully sensitive statements on the issue of Bangladeshi Hindu. Ajmal said that there was no opposition to the detection of foreigners in accordance with the existing laws and the Assam Accord.

Meanwhile, AIUDF MLA Aminul Islam today said, “If need be, we may move a privilege motion in the Assembly.”
