GUWAHATI, Dec 2 � The Governments in the State and at the Centre should soon make clear their respective stands on the issue of signing an expatriation treaty with Bangladesh, said the regional Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) here today.
It seems that both the Governments are more keen on handing over Indian land to Bangladesh than to free the country from foreign infiltrators, who are posing a serious threat to the sovereignty and people of the country, said AGP working president Atul Bora (J). He was talking to this newspaper.
The indifference of the Governments in the State and at the Centre to sign an expatriation treaty with Bangladesh has been proved by the statement made yesterday by the MPs of Bangladesh in Guwahati, Bora said.
Moreover, he said, Chief Minister of the State Tarun Gogoi is misleading the people and Assembly of the State with his statements on the issue of land swap deal with the neighbouring country.
That he is deliberately misleading the people and the Assembly on the issue is proved by the fact that he is dragging his feet on the issue of taking an all party delegation to the Indo-Bangla border for a joint on-the-spot study of the ground reality on the issue, Bora said.
On the issue of deportation of the illegal Bangla migrants from the State both Congress and BJP are playing with the sentiments of the indigenous people. Congress has gone a step further by not taking up the issue of expatriation treaty with the Bangladesh Government and offering hundreds of acres of country�s land to the neighbouring country on a golden platter.
