GUWAHATI, March 2 - Opposition Congress on Monday demanded an inquiry by the State government into the alleged syndicates in Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) and NC Hills Autonomous Council (NCHAC).
�Syndicates of different items are going on in Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) and NC Hills Autonomous Council (NCHAC), due to which the State government has lost substantial revenue. Illegal transportation/dumping/storage of different articles like coal, sand, stone, etc., as well as overloaded coal trucks are passing from Dima Hasao to Bangladesh or other parts of the country,� said Apurba Bhattacharya, general secretary and spokesperson of the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) while addressing the media today.
�Different syndicates are going in the State despite claims of State BJP leaders that Assam is free from syndicates now. We demand that the State government take stringent action against the people involved in various syndicates,� he added.
Bhattacharya further said that the BJP-led government has started election-oriented politics in the State.
�Implementation of Clause 6 of Assam Accord and delimitation, etc., are nothing but an attempt to divert people�s attention from real issues. The National Register of Citizens (NRC) updating exercise is yet to be completed,� he added.
