Chidambaram arriving today

By Spl Correspondent

NEW DELHI, Nov 11 � The Centre has decided to launch a massive crackdown against the anti-talk faction of NDFB. Joint operations against the Bodo militant outfit are likely to be started shortly.

The decision was taken at a high-level meeting chaired by Union Home Secretary GK Pillai. The meeting reviewed the internal security situation in Assam in the aftermath of the killings.

The decision was taken even as Union Home Minister P Chidambaram is arriving in Guwahati tomorrow morning to take stock of the situation.

Official sources said Chidambaram would reach Guwahati from Chennai and is likely to chair a high-level meeting of top officials of State Government, Army and Central paramilitary forces, besides meeting Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi. He is flying back to Chennai in the afternoon.

After AGP, on Thursday it was the turn of the State BJP�s four Lok Sabha MPs to stage a sit-in demonstration protesting the killings by the anti-talk faction of the NDFB and State Government�s failure to protect the people. Those who participated in the protest included Bijoya Chakravarty, Rajen Gohain, Ramen Deka and Kabindra Purkayastha.

Meanwhile, Ramen Deka called on Union Home Minister P Chidambaram to formally take up the issue.

Deka told newsmen that the Union Home Minister told him that he had asked Assam Government to convey to the jailed chairman of NDFB Ranjan Daimary that such killings were unacceptable and to ensure that such incidents do not happen in the future.

Meanwhile, talking to newsmen Bijoya Chakravarty said that they are demanding a stop to such killings and punishment of the guilty. She further alleged that till now the government has nabbed none of the killers involved in the killings. She also wondered whether the genocide, like in the past, was an indication of things to come in the future.

She warned that if government fails to control the internal security situation before the Assembly election then the Congress Government should be dismissed.
