DIBRUGARH, August 20 � Assam completed 27 years on August 15, 2012, after the historic Assam Accord signed between the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and the leaders of the Assam movement. However, the main demand for detection and deportation of illegal immigrants from Assam has not been complied with by respective governments. Even after Supreme Court�s declaration of IM(DT) Act as illegal and unconstitutional, non-implementation of the accord has left the greater Assamese society worried.
Perturbed by the non-implementation of the Assam Accord, Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) on Sunday said that failure to detect and deport lakhs of infiltrators from the neighbouring country was a matter of serious concern for Assam. The AGP demanded that every clause of the Accord be implemented without further delay. In a memorandum submitted to the Prime Minister through the Deputy Commissioner here, the district unit of the AGP apprised the Prime Minister of the burning problems of the State and sought his intervention to resolve them.
The AGP also informed the Prime Minister that the State Government had failed to maintain law and order in Assam due to its inefficiency.
The regional party has demanded that those who have lost their homes be paid Rs 3 lakh and those whose properties have been damaged be paid Rs 1 lakh per family.
On flood and erosion, the AGP said that the Prime Minister being one of the representatives from Assam should take initiative in declaring flood and erosion as national problem, besides protecting the historic Majuli from flood and erosion. The Asom Gana Parishad has also asked the Prime Minister to control price rise of essential commodities, stating that escalating prices was deteriorating the living conditions of the common people.
