Congress �responsible� for unrest in NE: BJP

By The Assam Tribune

ITANAGAR, Oct 16 � The BJP today held the Congress �responsible� for the socio-political unrest in the Congress-ruled NE States, particularly Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur and Meghalaya.

�Congress rule is synonymous with conflict and mis-governance�, party�s North East in-charge P Chandrasekhar Rao told a press conference here today while citing the infighting within the ruling Congress in Arunachal that has brought instability and halted all developmental activities.

�Governance has totally collapsed, causing suffering for the common masses, while huge amounts of Central funds had been diverted for funding political activities at the cost of development,� Rao alleged.

He alleged that the ruling Congress failed to solve the imbroglio in Manipur where the bandh call to demand a Sadar Hills district has entered its 75th day.

�There is acute shortage of essential commodities and the people of Manipur are paying skyrocketing prices for anything they buy�, he pointed out.

�The frequent infighting within the Congress in Meghalaya has made the Chief Minister�s seat a musical chair while the NCP, despite being a coalition partner of the Congress at the Centre, plays the role of opposition in that State,� he said.

Senior BJP leader L K Advani is scheduled to visit Itanagar and Guwahati on October 20 as part of his Jan Chetna Yatra, BJP national general secretary Tapir Gao said.

PR demanded: Expressing concern over the on-going political crisis in the ruling Congress in Arunachal Pradesh, apex students body North East Students Organisation (NESO) has demanded imposition of President�s Rule in the State.

�There is complete breakdown of law and order and common people are unhappy with the Congress Government and its leaders,� NESO secretary general Gumjum Haider said in a communique here today.

In the State capital here there is complete breakdown in law and order due to the government�s ineffective handling of situation, he alleged.

NESO asked All Arunachal Pradesh Students� Union to build confidence and mutual trust among all communities of the State and urged all community-based youth organisations and students organisations of the State to think beyond political loyalties for peace in the State.

Meanwhile, the peace committee of Arunachal Pradesh PCC in a meeting here yesterday has appealed to all sections of the people to maintain peace and communal harmony and to work unitedly for restoration of normalcy in the State capital. It asked all Congress workers of the State to create a congenial atmosphere at this juncture.

Both Chief Minister Jarbom Gamlin and dissident leader Nabam Tuki have authorised AICC president Sonia Gandhi to take the final call to end the ongoing political turmoil in the State over the change of leadership. � PTI
