GUWAHATI, Sept 11 � Members of the regional Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) observed an eight-hour fast from 8 am today at the district and sub-divisional headquarters all over the State in support of their demands for solution to the vexed aliens� issue and providing constitutional safeguard to the indigenous people of the State by implementing the Assam Accord.

The members of the regional party also demanded urgent steps to arrest the rise in the prices of essential commodities and permanent solutions to the border disputes of the State with its neighbouring States.

In a statement here this evening, AGP president Atul Bora alleged that it was because of the apathy and weak stand of the Central Government to implement the Assam Accord that illegal migrants could not be expelled from the State. The problem of illegal migration has affected the society, economy and politics of the State and has posed a serious threat to the existence of its indigenous people.

He also criticised the failure of the Central ministers, including the Prime Minister and the Home Minister, to visit the State when flood was making life miserable for a large section of its people.

The Prime Minister who used to declare that if voted to power the BJP Government at the Centre would compel all the illegal migrants to leave the Indian soil, today is maintaining silence on the issue, said the AGP president.

He also alleged that the both the Governments in the State and at the Centre are in nexus with the unscrupulous traders and this has been facilitating abnormal rise in the prices of essential items.
