AKRSU(B) plans to float political party

By Correspondent

BONGAIGAON, May 12 � Biswajit Ray-led All Koch Rajbongshi Students� Union and its two wings � the All Koch-Rajbongshi Mahila Samiti and Chilarai Sena are planning to form a political party to carry forward their demands in Dispur and Delhi. Executive members of the AKRSU(B) and its wings took the decision on Sunday at an extended executive meeting held at the head office of the student organisation here, AKRSU president Biswajit Ray said.

�Unless we have a political power, we cannot compel the government to resolve our demands of Kamatapur and scheduled tribe status to our community as both the State and the Union governments give weight to those who have either guns or political power to press their demands,� Ray said.

The people of other communities, who support the issues of the Koch Rajbongshis, can be included in the newly floated party unlike the AKRSU, in which only a Koch Rajbongshi can be a member, to make its base strong, Ray indicated.

The Koch Rajbongshi community, whose population is above 45 lakh in the State, would support the party to be floated by the AKRSU as an alternative to the Congress, AGP and BJP as these parties had ignored the demands of the community, Ray added.

The AKRSU president urged all the communities in the State to gather unitedly on a single political platform, like the party formed by the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti president Akhil Gogoi, to fight against the discriminatory policies of the government.

The AKRSU would resume its agitation on the Kamatapur and ST status demands from May 18 with a 24-hour Kamatapur bandh on the day, followed by a 12-hour rail blockade on June 3, besides holding of public awareness meetings and slogan writing on walls. The leaders of the organisations would soon meet the Prime Minister, Home Minister and Tribal Affairs Minister to place their demands anew.

Meanwhile, the AKRSU and its two wings have demanded immediate removal of Durlabh Chamua, who is also a Congress legislator, and Bireswar Saikia from the Koch Rajbonshi Kshatriya Sanmiloni, which was formed by late Thakur Panchanan Barma in 1912, for working against the principles of the body. The duo had been using the organisation in their personal interest, ignoring the welfare of the community, alleged Biswajit Ray.
