BJP blames provocative statements

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 2 - Ruling BJP today said that provocative statements made in recent times by some groups and individuals are to be blamed for the Dhola incident and appealed to the State government to initiate a �thorough and impartial� probe into the entire matter.

Addressing a press conference here today, State BJP president Ranjeet Kumar Dass criticized a section of the media for airing the provocative statements made by certain groups and individuals and said that it has vitiated the atmosphere.

�Certain provocative and insensitive speeches and statements of some persons and organizations, which were repeatedly telecast in a section of the media, has led to the death of five innocent persons... This is an attempt to stall the journey of peace and progress embarked on by the BJP government,� he said.

Dass said that some elements have been repeatedly making inflammatory statements on sensitive matters, like the NRC update process and the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016.

�Yesterday�s incident is a fallout of that,� Dass said.

Condemning the brutal killing of five innocent persons in the attack, Dass said that the State BJP has demanded the Assam government to initiate a thorough and fair probe into the provocative comments as well as yesterday's incident.

He said some elements are trying to create a �terror-like� situation to put a brake in the developmental activities undertaken by the BJP-led regime.

�We doubt that some political party could be behind this. It was done with an aim to hamper peace and derail development works of the government, but they will not be successful,� Dass said.

The senior BJP leader accused the Congress of attempting to create confusion in the minds of the people and added that leaders of the Opposition party have been speaking in divergent voices on issues like the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.

�People of Assam are suffering and paying the price for the sins committed by the Congress. This is a well known fact that BJP unites, while Congress party divides. Since last few months the Congress has been trying to unsettle the peace of the State by raising emotional issues, forgoing logic and reason and encouraging divisive tendencies,� he said.

Asked if BJP believes that the Congress party is involved in yesterday�s incident at Dhola, Dass said, �I am not saying that Congress is behind it. An enquiry will reveal the truth, but Assam�s main problem is the foreigners� issue. Who is responsible for that? Who allowed foreigners to come to Assam since the time of Independence? Under which party�s rule was land of sattras and of Kaziranga allowed to be encroached upon? Congress is responsible for all those things? And now we are trying to deal with those problems and solve them.�

Dass added that controversial BJP legislator Shiladitya Dev has been warned not to make any inflammatory statements.

�We have warned him to be careful in his comments or else I will be forced to write to the Parliamentary Board of our party for taking action against him,� he said.
