DIBRUGARH, April 27 � The Asom Yuba Parishad, the youth wing of the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), has come down heavily on the Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah for his statement that Bangladeshi Hindu refugees would get Indian citizenship if the BJP is voted to power in the forthcoming Assembly election in the State.
Asom Yuba Parishad president Sunil Rajkonwar said that the BJP is trying to create divisions among the Assamese people in the name of religion to gain political mileage. �BJP must not indulge in cheap communal politics and refrain from creating disturbance among the peace-loving people of the State. We strongly condemn Amit Shah�s statement, he said.
He said that the BJP leader�s view on giving Indian citizenship to Hindu Bangladeshis amounts to a total disrespect to the Assam Accord. All Bangladeshis, irrespective of religious affiliations, must leave Assam, the AGP youth wing underlined.
