KOKRAJHAR, Jan 4 � Expressing his shock over the forcible sending of relief camp inmates to their homes without proper security and arrangement of regular ration, BTC chief Hagrama Mohilary today urged the State Government to ensure safety and provide food and basic amenities to those in such camps.
Talking to media persons after a meeting of the BPF held this morning at the Cultural Complex here, Mohilary said the relief camp inmates should be provided assistance and regular ration for a period of at least one month as a gestation period to resume their normal life.
Mohilary also condemned certain incidents where officials had reportedly put pressure on the relief camp inmates to go back home, threatening them of stopping further supply of relief materials. He, therefore, appealed to the government to provide all possible security apart from creating a congenial environment before these people are sent to their respective villages. He said that if necessary, both the BTC and the BPF party would also extend help in this regard.
At the same time, Mohilary blamed the ABSU and the NDFB under ceasefire faction for providing protection and shelter to the NDFB(S) cadres for their own political interest. He asked them to refrain from such kind of activities for the greater interest of the region.
He has also informed that the BTC is going to provide help for constructing houses of these affected people and also extend coaching and other facilities for the HS and HSLC examinees of this year.
Meanwhile, under the aegis of the Kokrajhar district administration, a peace meeting was held today at the Deputy Commissioner�s office here. The meeting was chaired by Thaneswar Malakar, Deputy Commissioner, Kokrajhar. Representatives of different students bodies, NGOs and other organisations attended the meeting.
