Cachar District Youth Congress on Tuesday demanded magisterial inquiry into coal syndicate run by BJP led coal mafia.
The youth Congress members alleged that BJP led coal mafia is ‘making hay while the sun shines’.
Cachar District Youth Congress president Javed Akhtar Laskar speaking to Northeast Now, said, “While on a tip off on Sunday evening last, we visited Malidor, bordering Assam and Meghalaya, and found that many trucks with loads of close to 200 metric tonnes of coal, lined up on both sides of the border, for illegally entering into this region.”
Javed Akhtar Laskar, added, “Before making this journey, we informed both SP and Deputy Commissioner of Cachar of this smuggling racket that has been going on and many more are lined up, for which, a team of police officials which included an Inspector of Gumrah Outpost and DSP Border were already stationed out there. We kept a watch on these trucks the whole night and on Monday morning at around 5:30 a group of boys in 10 to 15 vehicles rounded up the police as well as us and started arguing on the matter. One of the guys informed that we have intruded upon their flourishing business and also stopped him from earning around Rs 5 lakhs for that night.”
Narrating more on the holy nexus between these group of boys and the higher ups, Javed Akhtar Laskar, said, “These group of young men told us that they work for the BJP and this shows that ‘coal syndicate’ is still prevalent even when the Chief Minister of Assam, Sarbananda Sonowal, has ordered for a CBI probe into the matter.”
“The promises of BJP government of zero tolerance are a hoax and we demand for a magisterial inquiry into this ‘syndicate raaj’ that is going on,” Javed Akhtar Laskar said.
