GUWAHATI, Jan 23: State BJP Minority Morcha president Mominul Aowal today blamed it on Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and AIUDF president Badruddin Ajmal for the present plight of the minority people in Assam.
Talking to newsmen Atal Behari Vajpayee Bhavan in the city today, Aowal said: “Barring deception, the Congress that has ruled State for 55 years has failed to do any good for the minorities of Assam. During the past 55 years, Congress goons, leaders and honchos have been looting the benefits of the Rs 55,000 crore Wakf property comprising 15,805 bigha, 13 katha and two lessas in Assam. There has been no assessment of Wakf property since 1957. It was on October 6, 2015 that Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi did announce an inquiry into the Wakf Board property, but to little avail. On October 12, 2015, the Chief Minister and his top officials had a meeting with the office-bearers of the Wakf Board where as many as eight decisions were taken. However, none of the decisions has been implemented as yet. This is Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and the Congress’ affection for the minority people of the State! However, keeping all these aside, Gogoi is trying to tag the BJP as anti-minority.”
Momin asked Gogoi if he would give details of what his government had done for the minorities in the past 15 years. “After Modi becoming the Prime Minister, his government has released Rs 525.26 crore for the development of minorities through various schemes in Assam. Can Gogoi say where and how he has spent the amount? If a Congress man is a friend for a minority person, the latter doesn’t need any enemy for his/her doom,” he said, and added: “After rendra Modi becoming the Prime Minister, there has been no commul clashes in Assam. In fact, the Congress and AIUDF president Badruddin Ajmal were responsible for the past commul clashes in the State. There has been no inquiry into any of the past commul clashes in Assam, as though Dispur wants all the culprits go scot free. Ajmal has been using the minority people of Assam as a commodity in his business empire.”
Momin also came down heavily on former Bihar Governor Devand Konwar for, what he said, making a statement: “Assamese is the second language in Assam, next to Bengali. He has lost his mental balance. Bohori in Chenga, where Konwar made such a statement, is famous for a Xatra. There is none in the State who is as worst as Konwar.”
Morcha general secretary Mahiruddin Ahmed was also present at the press meet.
