Veer Lachit Sena Activist Seizes Garib Kalyan Yojana Bags for Writing in Bangla
Two words (Garib) and “Sarkar” were written in the Bangla instead of the Assamese. The Lachit Sena activists seized and handed over the bags to the police.
GUWAHATI: Veer Lachit Sena activists seized some bags of Garib Kalyan Anna Surkhya Yojana for writing the Bangla instead of the Assamese in the peripheries in Simaluguri, Sivasagar.
They alleged that to denote the bags carrying the government rice supplied to the poor people, the name of the scheme was printed in the outer layer of these.
However, two words (Garib) and "Sarkar" were written in the Bangla instead of the Assamese. The Lachit Sena activists seized and handed over the bags to the police.
They also demanded the government supply only the Assamese printed bags to the fair-price shops.
Earlier, Veer Lachit Sena has warned the Barak Valley Bengali organizations which painted black on a Jal Jeevan Mission signboard for writing the message it carried in Assamese.
Shrinkhal Chaliha, the leader of the Veer Lachit Sena, categorically stated that they would not tolerate such anti-Assamese activities in Assam. He also demanded the arrest of the Bengali organizations' leaders who were involved in the smearing black on the Jal Jeevan Mission signboard within 48 hours.
The Veer Lachit Sena leader also said that they filed complaints against the leaders in Sivasagar.
Also sending a strong warning to the Assam BJP-led government, Chaliha said that if the government does not take any action against the Bengali organizations' leaders, they will take their own step.
"Thousands of members of our outfit would take to street if the government does not initiate any action against them. If it happens, the government must take all the responsibilities," he added.
