GUWAHATI, Dec 12: The Krishak Sramik Unyan Parishad, Assam (KSUPA) has appealed to the people of Assam to shun the Congress, the BJP and the AIUDF in the 2016 Assembly elections in the State.
Talking to newsmen in the city today, KSUPA president Pradip Kalita said: “These three are good-for-nothing parties. In the past 15 years, the greedy Congress ministers and MLAs looted the State exchequer. There’s no district in the State where farmers and labourers have got benefits from various schemes meant for them. Development of roads, bridges and the supply of potable water has been a non-happening in the past 15 years in the State.”
In his scathing attack on the BJP, Kalita said: “The BJP has been out with its commul design in the State. The party’s activities in the State reek of fratricidal killings in the State. The party is a threat to the unity and integrity in the State that may face bloodbath if the activities of the Saffron party aren’t stopped now.”
Kalita said: “The AIUDF isn’t a party devoted for the development of the Muslims in Assam. It’s a party that is out to spread the business empire of party president Badruddin Ajmal through politics. Ajmal has been selling the Muslim voters in every election to big tiol political parties. We caution Ajmal to stop selling the Muslim voters of Assam. Ajmal has been an MP for the second time. He, however, hasn’t yet raised the issue of floods and erosion in Assam in the Lok Sabha. We appeal to the people of Assam to shun the Congress, the BJP and the AIUDF in the 2016 Assembly elections in the State.”
The KSUPA president said that the Parishad took out a bicycle rally in nine LACs in 20 districts in the State from November 5 this year in support of its nine-point charter of demands. “However, Dispur has refrained from calling us for discussion of our demands. Such an attitude on the part of Dispur has led us to resort to a fast-unto-death in Guwahati from December 24.”
Kalita also came down heavily on Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on the issue of talks on providing land pattas. “As many as three organizations of the State have been agitating in support of their demand for land pattas. However, the Chief Minister is engaged in talks with only one of the three organizations, ignoring the other two. This is a conspiracy on the part of the Chief Minister to win the 2016 Assembly elections in the State for the fourth consecutive term.”
