Silchar, July 30: A delegation of the Assam Jatiya Parishad(AJP) led by its president Lurinjyoti Gogoi met the injured police officials on Thursday who are under treatment at the Silchar Medical College and Hospital.
Later, talking to the media, Gogoi said that the injured police persons must be given better treatment and wished good health for all injured personnel. Expressing solidarity, Gogoi made it clear that AJP is with the people of Barak Valley and echoed "we will not allow an inch of Assam land to be encroached by anyone at any cost."
However, he raised questions on the State and Central Governments and said "the Government at the Centre has not taken steps for a permanent solution to the interstate boundary dispute." Criticizing the statement by Chief Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma that if Parliament decides to hand over Barak Valley, Guwahati and Nalbari to any other state, the Government would have no objections, Gogoi said " so far as protecting Assam land is concerned we are all united. But such a statement by the Chief Minister hints at a divisive mindset to which we oppose and differ." He informed that the delegation would visit the clash-affected interstate border as well.
