Cachar administration takes tough stand against bandh

Our Special Correspondent
Silchar, April 1: The district administration of Cachar has taken a tough stand against bandh called by an organization masquerading itself as Cachar Pratibadi Mancha on Monday, purportedly against the alleged statement of VHP general secretary Surendra Kumar Jain, calling Muslims to come back to Hindu fold. It has been stated that there is clearly a malafide intention and the information about the bandh is being spread to create misunderstanding between the two communities. Moreover, the organization has not taken any permission from the district administration.
A complaint in this regard has been made and the police is taking up the matter.  Deputy Commissioner of Cachar S Lakshman has reached out to the media of the district, seeking its cooperation in exposing the fake information and to let the people know that there will be no strike as it has not been allowed. The bandh at this moment of crucial phase of NRC update will seriously affect the proceedings. Moreover, common people will be put to immense inconveniences.
It has therefore been clarified by the Deputy Commissioner that all government offices and all modes of transport will function and operate as per normal schedule. Any violation of peace and order will be dealt with strictly and inconstant with the laws of the land. The bandh has been called by Ansar Hussain Barlaskar, chief advisor, Cachar Pratibadi Mancha. In reality, this organization has come into existence overnight and its activities are quite unknown.
