JPC visit postponement a conspiracy: AIUDF

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 2 - The All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) has termed the postponement of the visit to Assam by the Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) on Citizenship (Amendment) Bill as a political conspiracy.

AIUDF general secretary and former MLA Abdur Rahim Khan said in a statement that after protest against the Bill by various political and non-political outfits of the State, the JPC had fixed the date for visiting Assam to know the views of all stakeholders on the issue.

He said that Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal met RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on October 28 and following that it was decided that the JPC will not visit the State before the by-elections to the Lakhimpur Lok Sabha and Baithalangso Assembly seats.

Khan said that this is all part of a political conspiracy. �Knowing well that the Assamese people will oppose the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill and this will have an impact on the by-elections, the JPC postponed the visit on the advice of the State government and on the directions of the RSS,� said the AIUDF leader.

The Badruddin Ajmal-led party also lambasted the BJP-led regime in Dispur over the hike in the application fee for State government jobs.

Khan said that the BJP, which came to power promising to address the unemployment problem of Assam, has now betrayed lakhs of unemployed youths of the State.
