1.23 lakh refugees in 90 relief camps in Dhubri

By Correspondent

GOLAKGANJ, July 28 � With a gradual improvement in the situation, the Dhubri district administration granted a 14-hour relaxation in the curfew starting from 8 am to 10 pm on Friday. Kumud Kalita, Deputy Commissioner, Dhubri said that, �90 relief camps have been set up in Dhubri district and 1 lakh 23 thousand refugees are taking shelter in various parts of the district.� The Deputy Commissioner further said that the administration�s first priority is to bring in normalcy in the riot-affected BTAD areas and in order to control the situation, sufficient paramilitary as well as Army jawans have already been deployed in Dhubri district.

According to sources, the Army finally moved in from the morning of Wednesday with the 18 Mahar Regiment which is deployed in Dhubri district for counter insurgency operations. Dhubri subdivision as such does not have a sizeable Bodo population as all areas now fall under BTC. The few families residing in Dhubri and Gauripur towns have been shifted to safer places. A large number of people from the minority community are coming over to Dhubri district for shelter from Kokrajhar district and they have been put in camps.

Shambhu Singh, Joint Secretary of the Union Home Department, during his Dhubri visit on Thursday said that within a week all the displaced persons, who were either dispersed or had migrated from the BTAD areas due to sporadic violence will be rehabilitated in their areas soon and the Government would take stern action if any one wants to disturb them. On the other hand, the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) expressed its deep concern over the grievous killing and arson in Dhubri, Kokrajhar and Chirang districts.

The AIUDF also demanded imposition of President�s Rule in Assam for confidence building among the people of different communities with effective and efficient administration. The AIUDF also condemned the incidents in which a large number of innocent people have been killed and thousands became homeless. �This kind of communal clash does not bring forth any good to the society. We urge upon the people of all communities to keep restraint and tolerance for peace and harmony of the society and the region,� Badaruddin Ajmal, MP, Dhubri Lok Sabha Constituency and AIUDF supremo said here on Friday. He also said, �the affected minority people have been given nothing in the name of relief even after seven days of the clash. Minority villages in vulnerable areas are still unsucured. Tarun Gogoi has totally failed to save the lives and properties of the citizens,� he said.
