NEW DELHI, Aug 11 � Disputing Assam Government�s claim about repatriation of inmates of relief camps, the AIUDF has called for proportional representation of population in the Bodoland Territorial council (BTC).
Addressing a press conference at the India Islamic Centre here this afternoon, Ajmal laid the entire blame on Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi�s door step, alleging that the violence may be an outcome of internal fight within the ruling Congress party. �For the infighting among State Congress-men, the people of BTAD area had to suffer,� Ajmal said.
Rejecting the State Government�s claim that over 1.60 lakh inmates of the relief camps have been sent back, Ajmal challenged that not a single of them have gone back home.
�The victims would not dare to go back until and unless they are assured of adequate security and safety by the Bodo leaders. BTAD Chairman Hagrama Mohilary has to take responsibility of their safety only then would they return home,� he said.
Replying to questions, Ajmal declined to give any specific deadline for return of the inmates of the relief camps, saying that the process might start after the Eid.
Stating that the root cause of the problem in BTAD areas was the composition of the Council, he said the majority non-Bodos had negligible representation, while minority Bodos had majority seats.
