CM misleading people in land swap deal: AASU

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Sept 20 � The All Assam Students� Union (AASU) today accused Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi of misleading the people with untrue statements on the land exchange pact India signed with Bangladesh recently.

In a statement here, the student body said that the Chief Minister has now been taking recourse to untrue statements on the land swap deal. He had told the media on September 8 that Assam had given up an area of 357.5 acres of land to Bangladesh and got 1240 acres of land in exchange. But now making a perfect u-turn, the Chief Minister is claiming that not a single inch of Assam land has been given to Bangladesh.

It is now evident from the official records that the Chief Minister has given up Assam land to Bangladesh to fulfill only his own interest at the cost of the greater interest of the State and ignoring the opinion of its people.

It is now reported by the media that the Central leaders have offered the post of Vice President to the Chief Minister for his role in the land swap deal, said the student body.

AASU further said that the Chief Minister even failed to discuss the issue with his party colleagues, Cabinet colleagues and any of the opposition parties before handing over Assam land to Bangladesh.

The Chief Minister had to hold a meeting with the members of his legislature party, Cabinet colleagues yesterday in the face of the popular protest against the deal, it said and demanded a convincing reply from the Chief Minister and the Prime Minister as to who authorised them to hand over Assam land to Bangladesh.

The Chief Minister has made a mockery of the State�s people. He has slighted the people of the State with this act of handing over Assam land to Bangladesh without caring to take their prior permission, said the student body.

The land which the Chief Minister has claimed to have been gained for the State through this land exchange pact is in fact State�s land and the area which has been handed over to Bangladesh also belonged to the State. The Chief Minister should now demonstrate the courage to get the land handed over to Bangladesh returned to the State, said the student body.
