The Founder President of All Cachar Karimganj, Hailakandi, Students Association (ACKHSA), Pradip Dutta Roy, came down heavily on ULFA (I) Chief, Paresh Baruah, for his unit’s bomb blast at Sukreshwar Ghat on Saturday in Guwahati.
It is to show protest for settlement of Hindu Bangladeshis in Assam post passing of the Citizens (Amendment) Bill, 2016.
Citing this act of Baruah as one of cowardice against Bengalis in Assam, Pradip Dutta Roy, appealed to all Bengalis living in this state not to be cowed by such an act of Paresh Baruah and his banned outfit.
Pradip Dutta Roy added talking to the media at his residence in Silchar on Sunday afternoon said, “Paresh Baruah spent most of his life in Bangladesh and among Bengalis out there and now he raises his voices against them. Paresh Baruah or his ULFA (I) has no mass base and not enough strength to carry out this task with local cronies in Guwahati.”
Dutta Roy went on to say that his Citizens (Amendment) Bill, 2016, would be tabled this winter session and passed without further hiccups. The Chief Minister of Assam Sarbananda Sonowal speaks of unifying Barak and Brahmaputra valley, for which, he too is pressing hard to get this bill passed.
Founder President of ACKHSA, also came down heavily on AIUDF Chief Badruddin Ajmal whose recent comments that if Citizenship Amendment Bill gets passed and Hindu Bengalis get citizenship, Assamese living in Assam would face a grave threat.
Roy regarding this said, comments like this, will bring about a divide between Assamese and Bengalis living in this state, rather, shall start a communal riot among these two communities. “If Hindu Bengalis and Assamese do not stay in this state amicably and be united, Assam would one day go to the hands of the Bangladeshis, said Pradip Dutta Roy.
Comments of Badruddin Ajmal is a statement to politicize the issue and I appeal to all not to think much about this for Ajmal is a businessmen and he would say anything that would bring him profit.
Bengali and Assamese communities together are celebrating Durga Puja, and any act or statements by these people, is not a good sign for peace and harmony in Assam, said, Pradip Dutta Roy.
