The Assam Congress has accused the BJP-led government in the state of failing to maintain social harmony and law and order in the state.

“…it has been observed that during the time of BJP government there has been growing intolerance and attitude of disrespect towards communities and the law of the land,” Assam Congress leader Bobbeeta Sharma said.

Sharma alleged that since the BJP came to power in Assam in 2016, certain organisations have been threatening to attack linguistic minorities in the state.

“It has come to our notice that some people belonging to certain organizations have openly stated their intention to attack Bengali- speaking people, taking the law into their own hands,” Bobbeeta Sharma further said.

The Congress leader added: “…statements are being made in media and posts shared on social media. This has potential to create disturbance of social harmony in the state.”

Bobbeeta Sharma accused the Assam government of failing to take necessary action to “check such attempts” of disturbing social harmony in the state.

“Forget any action, the government has not even expressed any strong reaction to check such statements,” Sharma said.

She added: “APCC urges the state BJP government to take strict action against anyone aiming to disturb social harmony and take the law into their own hands.”
