DIBRUGARH, Nov 25 - The Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) has opposed the coming visit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president, Amit Shah to the city on the ground that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has failed to resolve the burning problems of Assam as was promised by him during the poll campaign of the last general elections.
The AJYCP said that the BJP took the people of the State for a ride to win over their support. The youth organisation said that the saffron party was averse to the Indo-Bangladesh land swap deal before the Lok Sabha elections, but once they came to power they did a U-turn on the issue.
Their leaders even demanded that all illegal Bangladeshis must pack up and leave Assam, the AJYCP said, adding that after Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister, portions of Assam�s land were handed over to Bangladesh and the illegal foreigners from that country had become dear to him and his party.
In a press statement issued by the local unit of the AJYCP, the youth organisation said that the BJP has been working against the interest of the Assamese people by denying top posts to the deserving locals in Oil India Limited, Duliajan and Brahmaputra Cracker and Polymer Limited (BCPL) in Lepetkata.
The Narendra Modi-led government has also lifted the special status category of the state and is now pushing towards constructing big dams contrary to his pre-poll assurance that the people�s demand on the dam issue would be looked into, the organisation leaders mentioned.
The AJYCP leaders also said that by reinstating Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal in the post of the president of the State BJP, the party was seeking to use him as a tool to regain the diminishing trust of the people of the State for the ensuing Assembly elections. The organisation also called upon the people of Assam not to be swayed by sentimental rhetoric during the elections.
