SILCHAR, April 30: Citizens’ Rights Preservation Committee (CRPC), Assam, strongly condemns the unconstitutiol and undemocratic comment made by the Supremo of AIUDF on Wednesday on the floor of the Parliament. Expressing their annoyance and shock, Nripendra Chandra Saha, president, Sadhan Purkayastha, secretary general, Bidhayak Das Purkayastha, general secretary, Sekhar Dey and Chandan Mazumder, secretary of CRPC, said that as a Parliamentarian Ajmal has every right to express his opinion on the problems of north-east including foreigners’ issue, Assam Accord among others.

But he has no right to say that the people who came to Assam after March 25, 1971 should be dragged to the Indo-Bangladesh border and shot at gunpoint. CRPC took serious exception to say that he is neither god nor a supreme authority of law to give the verdict of death sentence. By making such derogatory comment within the Parliament he has not only proved his lack of knowledge and autocratic attitude but also broken the sanctity, pride and dignity of the Parliament.

CRPC requests the Speaker of the Parliament to clarify whether his comment is on record, quoted or unquoted one, and take stern measures for such unparliamentary and unconstitutiol remark and ensure that such unhealthy politics should not be encouraged by the law-making body of the country. The leaders of CRPC wants to remind that in the Election Manifesto of 2011 Loksabha polls, his party’s stand was in favour of granting citizenship status on humanitarian ground to the partition victims and the people of East Pakistan who were forced to take shelter in India due to religious persecution, killing, looting and rioting.

With the passing of time, he has realized that the minority community has lost their faith, hope and aspirations and no longer considers him as their one and only friend, philosopher and guide. So to regain his lost popularity and faith, he has started playing sty politics which is very harmful for the minority community in particular and the people of all other communities of Assam in large. The leaders of CRPC suggest Ajmal to involve in constructive politics for the greater interest of the people in general irrespective of caste, creed, community and religion, giving up destructive politics, so that people remember him as a true “Maula.”
