'Struggle for independent Assam after September'
Assam isn’t RSS’ parental property, says All Assam Surrendered ULFA Samittee
By our Staff Reporter
GUWAHATI, April 7: The All Assam Surrendered ULFA Samittee (AASUS) has pledged to start their struggle for independence of Assam after its central session slated from August-September, 2017.
The AASUS today observed the 38th foundation day of the ULFA at Lakhidhar Baruah Bhawan in the city. Addressing the gathering, AASUS president Rajkumar Duarah said: “The government hasn’t yet met the demands of the ULFA men who surrendered between 1992 and 2014. However, every Central Government keeps assuring us of meeting our demands. There’s no tangible difference between various parties – the Congress, AGP of the BJP. They’re all one and the same when it comes to meeting people’s demands. We’ve no faith on this government. Soon after our conference, we’re going the start the agitation for an independent Assam.”
Speaking on the move to accord Indian Citizenship to Bangladeshi Hindus, Duarah said: “No foreigner – legal or illegal – will be allowed to stay in Assam. We won’t accept any step that will spell doom for the Assamese tiolity. The RSS is out to accord Indian citizenship to Bangladeshi Hindus who entered Assam illegally. Assam isn’t the parental property of the RSS. Where were the RSS activists when members of the Bengali Udastu Samiti vandalized the office of the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) at Silapathar the other day? When Subudh Biswas was creating archy in Assam, why did Dispur sit idle, let alone voicing any word? If the RSS brings Hindu Bangladeshis to Assam now, the Congress will bring Muslim Bangladeshis to the State latter. In such a competition, the worst affected will be the Assamese — their language, literature and culture. However, we won’t allow that to happen. We’re ready to face any situation that may rise in the fight against Bangladeshis.”
