GUWAHATI, Oct 30: The BJP Assam Pradesh has condemned the AAMSU and some parties and individuals for, what it said, their design to derail the NRC update and publication process at a time when the State Government is going ahead by taking all, including the minorities, together.

Talking to newsmen in the city on Monday, State BJP’s Minority Morcha general secretary Matiur Rahman said: “The BJP never goes against genuine Indian minorities. Unlike this, Congress, AIUDF and AAMSU have been misleading minorities of the State for their vested interests. Of late, these parties have huddled together and are out to create panic among the minorities in the State on NRC update. However, the BJP has made it crystal clear that no me of genuine Indian citizen will be dropped from NRC.”

Reacting to AAMSU’s statement terming the State BJP Minority Morcha a slave that has no takers, Rahman said: “The people of Assam know it well as to for whom AAMSU took to slavery. The people of Assam never expect anything worthy from AAMSU that is working at the diktat of a political party.”

Reacting to AAMSU’s statement that the BJP has not included any Muslim in the State Cabinet, Rahman said: “BJP leaders are in politics not to be ministers. The previous governments had minorities as ministers to head the Minority Department. What’s the development index of the minorities in the State is as glaring as daylight. It’s due to corruption in the department minority youths in the State have been lagging behind. In order to put an end to corruption in the department, Chief Minister Sarbanda Sonowal has kept it with him. Following a directive from the Chief Minister, development works in minority-infested areas are going on smoothly now. The government has already announced that it is going to set up eight girls’ colleges in minority-domited areas so as to boost women education among the community. Assam Minority Development Board chairman Muminul Aowal had a number of sittings with the Chief Minister for the development of minorities in the State. He has also held such meetings with the minorities in the State and took their suggestions. It’s a matter to be worried as to why the AAMSU isn’t satisfied with the activities of the government when development works for minorities are going on in the right direction in the State.”
