GUWAHATI, July 16: The BJP government at Centre and the Congress government in the State is conspiring to push Assam towards a dark future in order to have the reign of power in their hands. Addressing a press conference, AGP president Atul Bora said on Thursday.

“The work for NRC update was initiated as a result of the Assam Accord and March 25, 1971 was made the base year. But, for the sake of power, the BJP government at Centre and the Congress government in the state are now creating confusion, thereby disrupting the entire process. The BJP is trying to safeguard the Hindu illegal immigrants in the me of religion and the Congress is trying to safeguard all illegal immigrants by making the voter list of 2014 an additiol document. This is not acceptable at all and the AGP will not tolerate insult to the Assam Accord and the 855 martyrs who laid down their lives for the motherland,” Bora said adding that the party will soon file an affidavit in this regard in the Supreme Court.

Taking a shot at the BJP over the land swap deal with Bangladesh and interlinking of Rivers, the AGP president said, “The BJP showed its true colour. They are same like the Congress when it comes to Assam. By interlinking the Rivers, now they are trying to loot the water resources of the State. The waters of River Mash will go to Ganga via Teesta and Sonkush, we will never tolerate this. The AGP will oppose it in strong terms.” On land swap deal he said that the party will observe black day on July 31.

Meanwhile, on being asked about his meeting with dissident Congress leader Dr Himanta Biswa Sharma at the residence of noted intellectual ni Gopal Mahanta, Bora said that it was a coincidence nothing as speculated by the media. He however added that if any leader from any tiol party wants to join the regiol force to safeguard the interest of Assam, then the party would welcome them wholeheartedly.
