GUWAHATI, May 5 � Voluntary organisation Assam Public Works (APW) today decried the attempts made by some forces to dub as communal the violent incidents of Kokrajhar and Baksa districts of the Bodoland Territorial Autonomous Districts (BTAD) areas.
In fact, the militants and their cohorts have committed this inhuman crime against a section of the hapless people in Kokrajhar and Baksa. Innocent people, including children, were killed like game animals in these two districts. This has slurred the human civilisation and those who have committed this crime should be given stringent punishment, said the voluntary organisation.
It is high time that the people of the State remained vigilant against all efforts of the vested interest circles to project these incidents as communal ones. The unity among the people of the State should not be allowed to be affected by any force, it said.
APW president Abhijit Sarma blamed the State Government for the BTAD violence, stating that it was due to wrong approach of the government towards the militants like Ranjan Daimary that such incidents have occurred.
These militants have been making the situation in the State volatile, Sarma alleged.
