Gogoi Govt misleading people: AGP

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, Sept 16 � Opposition Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) today asserted that the State Government is misleading the people on the issue of the land exchange deed signed by India with Bangladesh recently. It has demanded immediate repeal of the pact or warned continuation of its democratic agitation against the agreement. The party has also announced a �Dispur Chalo� (March to Dispur) agitation on September 30 against the accord.

Terming the land treaty between India and Bangladesh as an arbitrary one imposed upon the people of Assam, the party has also decided to take its movement to the national capital.

A team of the AGP leaders and activists led by party president Chandra Mohan Patowary would go to New Delhi next week seeking President's intervention in this issue. The party leaders would sit with the leaders of other political parties seeking their support to nullify the treaty in Parliament.

Talking to The Assam Tribune, party general secretary Hitendra Nath Goswami said that in the coming Parliament session, the party would gherao the Parliament to register its protest against the treaty.

The party has demanded of the State Government a clear-cut statement on how much adverse possession land has been handed over to Bangladesh through the above deal.

The Opposition party has also demanded a statement from Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi as to whether he had received authorization form any of segments of the State's society like the State Assembly, the common people, the intellectuals or the political and non-political organisations authorized him to approve the above land exchange deal.

For, Goswami said, according to the Constitution of India, land and water are state subjects. The Teesta water sharing pact could not be signed between India and Bangladesh because of the opposition from West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. But in the case of the land exchange pact, Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi approved whatever the Union Government had proposed.
