A new political party that is trying to make its entrance by stoking the linguistic controversy: Himanta
Guwahati, Nov. 27 (UNI) Chief Minister of Assam Himanta Biswa Sarma said today that a new political party in Assam is trying to enter by stoking linguistic sentiment and tough measures would be taken against these acts in due course.
Breaking his silence on the removal of the Assamese poster in the Bengal-dominated Barak Valley, Mr. Sarma subtly hinted that the Trinamool Congress is behind all of these acts,
âThere is a new party that is trying to enter Assam and these activities are carried out with the intention of giving this party a foundation. The government is watching closely and we are just waiting for the right time to take action, âSarma said anyone who engages in such activities
is adamantly anti-Bengali and tough action will be taken against those people who take the government lightly.
Mr Sarma said there was a definite program of this party to make the Bengali people feel in Assam
feel vulnerable so they can exploit those feelings.
âToday you can see just after the removal of the Assamese poster in the Barak valley, there may be incidents against Bengalis in Sibsagar in the Brahmaputra valley by some organizations. Now anyone who does these activities cannot be Bengali loving person because they know very well
there will be repercussions in the Brahmaputra valley. More than 20 lakh Bengalis remain in the Brahmaputra valley.
Mr Sarma said the BJP had already launched a campaign in the Barak Valley to expose the nefarious design behind these acts. Bengali Hindus are a minority in the Barak Valley.
He praised the fact that the Bengali rulers of Assam in the Brahmaputra valley saw through this design
and vehemently condemned these incidents.
