BY OUR STAFF REPORTER
GUWAHATI, Sept 3: AIUDF president and Dhubri MP Maula Badaruddin Ajmal on Thursday slammed the Union government and State government and said that at a time when the people of the State is facing a disastrous time, the Union government and the State government is busy in politics of power, which is very unfortute.
In a statement to the media, he said, “The apathy of the concerned governments towards the State at this time of distress has showed their true colours.”
Slamming the Chief Minister, Ajmal said, “More than 10 lakh people are affected. Many of them are living in the 200 relief camps, more than 40 people have died, but the Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi is busy in power politics in New Delhi.”
Taking shot at the Union government, he said, “It is the responsibility of the Union government to lend out a supporting hand at this hour of distress, but till now no representative of the Union government has visited the flood affected areas of the State to take stock of the situation.”
He further said, “When Uttarakhand and Jammu Kashmir faced a similar situation, Prime Minister rendra Modi himself rushed to the States and monitored the entire relief and rehabilitation operation himself. If the prime minister shows the same enthusiasm for Assam floods, than we can think that he and his government treat all the States equally.”
Expressing concern over the apathy of the Centre and the State, the AIUDF president appealed both the governments to follow ‘Raj Dharma’.
Instructing all the party workers to get involved in the relief and rehabilitation operations, Ajmal appealed the NGOs and concerned citizens to join hands instead of looking for help from the government.
