DIPHU, Sept 23 � The Karbi Anglong district BJP has sternly rebuffed the accusation levelled against the party by Hills State Democratic Party (HSDP), stating that the HSDP was misleading the general people of the two hill districts just to gain publicity.

The general secretary of the district BJP, Ajit Dey in a press statement on Saturday claimed that the recent charge of the HSDP against the BJP of doing nothing to achieve statehood comprising the hill areas of Assam, and subsequent criticism against Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who was the president of the party during the last Lok Sabha election, was baseless and fabricated.

Clearing its stand on the statehood issue, he said that �Rajnath Singh never promised about creating a separate State, rather he mentioned about the creation of an autonomous State encompassing the two hill districts of Assam as envisaged under Article 244(A) of the Sixth Schedule of the Indian Constitution�.

Dey also made it clear that the BJP has an agenda for creation of a small State and the party was well aware of the autonomous State demand. He said that Article 244(A) was a constitutional mandate and the party will take all steps needed to fulfil the constitutional obligation.
