GUWAHATI, Nov 20: The BJP has said that if arresting officers, who got jobs through unfair means, under provisions of law and making xatra land free from encroachment are dictatorship the government is committed to make such ‘offences’.
State BJP spokesperson Muminul Aowal said this in a statement issued to the press on Monday, while reacting to Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Ripun Bora’s outbursts against the BJP-led government in the State. He said that the allegations brought against the BJP-led coalition government in the State by APCC president Ripun Bora have no basis. The BJP-led government in the State is supported by four pillars – making the State free from corruption, free from foreigner, free from insurgency and free from pollution.
As against this, Aowal said, the 15-year-long Congress rule in the State was marked by corruption, illeagality, atrocity and whatnot. Each of the departments in the State government in the past 15 years had mounting corruption, he said, and added: “sty politics did even entrap all-important NRC update.”
Aowal said: “During the Congress rule in the past 15 years, antisocial elements had the upper-hand and fundamentalist organizations sprang up on Assam land. It was under the Congress regime that the Congress, the Communists and commul elements huddled together and started a hate campaign in an organized way. However, the present dispensation at Dispur won’t let that happen. The publication of fil NRC will script the sunset of the Congress in the State.”
Rubbishing former chief minister Tarun Gogoi’s recent statement before the media that NRC is his ‘mas putro (mind-born son’, Aowal said: “That isn’t true. Gogoi’s four sons are – corruption, faulty policy, illegality and atrocity. At a time when Chief Minister Sarbanda Sonowal has been reaffirming the people of the State that not an inch of Assam land will be ceded to galand, the Congress has been raising a hue and cry on the galim issue.”
