Multiple FIRs have been lodged at different police stations in the State by Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) activists against one Dibyajyoti Hazarika for allegedly posting an offensive video on his Facebook account against KMSS leader and RTI activist Akhil Gogoi.
KMSS central committee president Raju Bora lodged an FIR at Kampur Police Station in Nagaon district on June 4 while one Manishankar Gayari also filed a case against Hazarika at Goalpara Sadar Police Station on June 5.
Jorhat unit of KMSS activists filed a case (No 1337/12) under sections 153A, 294, 499 of Indian penal Code (IPC) and Section 66 of IT Act at Jorhat Police Station on June 5 while another FIR was filed by KMSS activists at Simaluguri Police Station in Sivasagar district.
Talking to Northeast Now, KMSS general secretary Dharjya Konwar said, “We would be compelled to launch protest if police won’t arrest him (Dibyajyoti Hazarika) soon.”
Bringing allegations against Bharatiya Janata Paty-led Central Government, Konwar said, “Attempt to murder KMSS leader Akhil Gogoi is an example of fascist rule by Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Government.”
“The act of so-called Rudra Sena Asom’s president Dibyajyoti Hazarika is a part of the fascist rule of the BJP-led Government,” said Konwar.
Konwar further said, “The continuous protest by the KMSS against the Centre’s move to implement the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 has become a major obstacle to the Government and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) to fulfil their motifs to grant Indian citizenship to illegal migrants.”
Demanding arrest of Hazarika, the KMSS general secretary said, “We urge the Assam Government to provide security to Akhil Gogoi.”
Hazarika, through the video which was uploaded on his Facebook account, threatened Akhil Gogoi terming him as a ‘traitor’ and claimed himself to be a ‘patriot’.
