GUWAHATI, Nov 26 � Demanding the State government to release the Bengali Hindu men and women without any pre-condition from the detention camps in various parts of the State and immediate solution of the �D Voter� problem in the State, the All Assam Bengali Jatiya Parishad has called a bandh on December 3.

The 12-hour Assam bandh would be relaxed for essential services like education, health, water supply and also for the media, said a statement.

The Parishad alleged that whereas the Bengali Hindus residing in Assam are facing a number of problems, none of the political parties is interested in addressing the problem of these people.

�Bengali Hindus residing in Assam are not foreigners, and no political party or organization should try to take political advantage by calling them foreigners,� said Subhash Mazumdar, advisor of the Parishad. The organization has also decided to act as a platform to highlight the problems faced by the Bengali Hindu people living in Assam and launch democratic movement for solution of their problems.

The Parishad also asked the State government to bring a Bill in the State Legislative Assembly during its Winter session for solution of the citizenship problems of the Bengali Hindus of the State. �We would no longer tolerate any kind of conspiracy against the innocent Bengali-speaking citizens of the State. If required, we would also place independent candidates during the coming Lok Sabha elections or we might boycott the elections, if steps are not taken to address our issues,� said Sudhendu Mohan Talukdar, another advisor of the Parishad. As part of the movement, a public convention would be organized in Guwahati in January next year.
