BADARPUR, Aug 10 � In a bid to solve the burning problem of D-voters, the Karimganj district unit of the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) has recently formed a legal cell under the direction of party supremo Badaruddin Ajmal, in which a group of advocates have been included as members.
The main purpose of the cell is to help the people and to provide free legal service in the entire Karimganj district regarding the D-voters issue.
Before the formation of the legal cell, a party meeting was held at the Karimganj circuit house where several speakers discussed about the burning problems of Barak Valley and their immediate solution.
Later, under the leadership of advocate Rajesh Malah, the members of the legal cell decided to legally fight the cases of D-voters against whom notices have been issued by the Foreigners Tribunal Court. The legal cell formed by the AIUDF has also decided to bear all the expenses.
The members of the newly-formed legal cell include advocates Atikool Bari Choudhuree, Islam Uddin, Nirmal Acharyya, Dulu Ranjan Das, Biswa Bhusan Barua among others.
Addressing the media persons after forming the legal cell, Abdul Muktadir Choudhuree, former minister and AIUDF leader alleged that the government is not sincere in solving the D-voters issue following which innocent and genuine Indian citizens are being unnecessarily harassed. He also criticised the role of police personnel in this regard.
Abdul Malik Choudhuree, AIUDF district president said that the party will knock the doors of the High Court or Supreme Court for immediate solution of the issue. He further said that AIUDF is totally against the pushing back of genuine Indian citizens.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Shiv Sena, Bajarang Dal, Viswa Hindu Parishad, Hindu Surakkha Mancha, Gairik Bharat and several other Hindu organisations have vehemently protested the physical and mental harassment upon the Bengali Hindus after terming them as D-voters and forcefully pushing them into Bangladesh.
Meanwhile, looking at the situation, the Karimganj unit of the BJP organised a meeting at Badarpur recently where former BJP MLA, Mission Ranjan Das, veteran BJP leader Rathindra Bhattacharyya, BJP Badarpur mandal president Chandan Paul and several other speakers criticised the role of the State Government. In the meeting, a legal aid cell for the D-voters was formed. They even threatened to start an agitation in the valley if the problems is not solved.
In view of the situation, a 12-hour Barak Valley bandh was observed on July 30 last by various organisations which disrupted normal life in the Barak Valley.
