Boko: Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Ripun Bora, former minister Rakibul Hussain, Chaygaon MLA Rekibuddin Ahmed, Sarukhetri MLA Zakir Hussain Sikdar and Boko Block Congress president Arabinda Rabha met families of recent accident victims during NRC re-verification at Dekachang village under Boko Legislative Assembly Constituency in Lower Assam’s Kamrup district on Sunday.
First they met the family of two sisters Arjina Begum and Jaymon Nechaly who died on the spot in a bus accident while returning from NRC re-verification hearing from Golaghat. The bus met with an accident at Gobordhan village under Chaygaon Police Station. The APCC team handed over Rs 30,000 as a one-time relief to their family. During the visit, APCC president Ripun Bora said that some people never wanted to settle the NRC process and that was why more than 35,000 people from Boko and Chaygaon constituencies had been called for re-verification within 12 hours instead of the Supreme Court’s order for hearing within 15 days. “This is the conspiracy of some people,” Bora said in his speech and added that this was why many people died or were seriously injured while trying to complete the NRC re-verification process.
After that the team met the family members of Rejia Khatun who also died in Kaliabor under Nagaon district during NRC re-verification hearing. The APCC team has given Rs 10,000 to the family as a one-time relief. Asking about the leaders who resigned from the Congress party and joined the BJP, APCC president said that those who leave the Congress party were only cheaters because they got everything from the Congress party but when the party was not in power now, they were leaving the party. Chaygaon MLA Rekibuddin Ahmed said, “This is the time when the Congress will re- build with new and young blood. The Congress party is like a sea and the party will never break down.”
