AGP to raise issue in Parliament

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Sept 26 - The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) on Monday announced that it is going to fight inside and outside the Parliament against the decision of the government to hand over land of Assam to Bangladesh.

Addressing media-persons here, former Chief Minister Prafulla Kumar Mahanta and Rajya Sabha MP Kumar Deepak Das described the decision as unfortunate and said that it went against all the democratic principles.

�The government has violated parliamentary democracy by deciding to hand over land without seeking the opinion of the people,� said Mahanta adding that the Tarun Gogoi government has compromised the interest of the State and was trying to mislead the people of Assam.

�Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi is always diverting the attention from one issue to another. When we have accused him of compromising the interest of the State, he is once again trying to mislead the people by bringing in the issue of barbed fencing during the AGP regime,� said Mahanta stressing that the attempts of the Chief Minister simply proved his ignorance about issues like international border, zero line, border roads etc.

Pointing out that barbed fencing by the State Government is not international border, Mahanta said that international border between two or more nations was a prerogative of the concerning national government.

Accusing Tarun Gogoi of allowing deviation of border fencing, Mahanta said that the fencing erected during AGP rule has been completely removed. �During the last 10 years, Tarun Gogoi allowed massive deviation of fencing in Barak Valley,� said Mahanta.

On the other hand, Das calling upon the people of the State to unite and oppose the land swapping decision, warned that such a decision of the government will threaten the existence of the indigenous communities. He further said that the AGP has been in touch with the opposition parties in this connection and that they had extended their support.
