KOKRAJHAR, Aug 12 � The ruling party of BTAD has demanded immediate arrest of AIUDF leader Badaruddin Ajmal for his instigative remarks and involvement in the recent communal clashes.
At a press meet here today, Deputy Chief of BTC and BPF leader Kampa Borgoyari said Ajmal was allegedly indulging in mass propaganda against the Bodos and trying to get BTC scrapped through political conspiracy and in rehabilitation of illegal migrants in a tactical manner to change the demography of the region.
Borgoyari blasted the AIUDF leader for using Muslim fundamentalists to attack the Bodos as his aim was to establish dominance of the minorities in order to paralyse the BTC.
The BTC leader alleged that Ajmal was spreading a wrong message of anti-Bodo sentiment across the country, due to which the people of NE states were finding themselves in a vulnerable situation in mainstream India. He appealed to the government to take appropriate steps against Ajmal for his anti-national activities.
The BPF leader expressed surprise as to how Ajmal could claim the presence of four lakh Muslims in relief camps when as per 2011 census the population of minority people in Kokrajhar was about 2.36 lakh.
Borgoyari categorically said that the BPF was for rehabilitation of the camp inmates only after verification of their nationality and an unbiased CBI inquiry into the incidents.
He also informed that BPF would approach all the tribal commissions to visit the area to focus the genuine issues and concerns of this place to address the crisis faced by the Bodo people.
Meanwhile, BPPF president Rabiram Narzary and advisor and ex-MP UG Brahma have welcomed the State Government�s decision for a judicial inquiry into the incidents of violence to reveal the truth.
On the other hand, curfew in Kokrajhar remains in force only from 8 pm to 6 am in view of gradual progress in the situation.
Our Staff Reporter in Guwahati adds: The Boro Women�s Justice Forum on Sunday stated that AIUDF leader Badaruddin Ajmal is the �main culprit of the ongoing clash all over India� and demanded his immediate arrest.
President of the Forum Anjali Daimari at a press conference here strongly criticized the role of Ajmal and said that this person was not fit to be a politician.
�The main villain behind the BTAD violence and the repercussion in other parts of India is AIUDF leader Badaruddin Ajmal. He has designed and planned the incident and he did it so perfectly that at first everyone thought it was the Bodos who were responsible for the incident. Now things have come to light and the culprit is before everyone to see,� said Daimari asserting that the design of Ajmal to reduce the Bodos into a minority community would never be fulfilled.
�Ajmal is also into the business of importing illegal Bangladeshis. The Bodo people did not even have the inkling that Ajmal would import lakhs of foreigners as part of his design to reduce the Bodos into a minority community and raise the demand for dissolution of BTC until the violence. Ajmal should keep in mind that illegal foreigners cannot overtake the Bodos. The Bodos will never allow BTAD to be a second Bangladesh,� warned Daimari.
Daimari said that emergence of a person like Ajmal in politics was not only unfortunate for Assam and but also a security threat. She pointed out that the distorted facts spread by Ajmal regarding the situation in Assam were enough to hold him guilty and book him under the law.
The Forum made it clear that ration card should not be the base for rehabilitating the violence-affected people. It also expressed its dissatisfaction with the fact that only two relief camps of Bodos were included in the list of 17 relief camps that Digvijay Singh visited.
