NESO accuses Centre of divisive policy

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Sept 12 � The Government of India is playing a divide and rule policy to prevent the people of the states of the Northeast from launching a united movement for the solution of the common problems facing the region, alleged the North East Students� Organisation (NESO), the umbrella organization of the students� bodies of the region.

President of the NESO, Samujjal Bhattacharya said that over the years, the Government of India did not take any positive step for the permanent solution of the boundary disputes among the states of the region. �The Centre wants the Northeast to remain divided and that is why no positive step has been taken to find permanent solution of the boundary disputes. The Governments of the concerned states also lack sincerity to deal with the problem,� he alleged.

The NESO appealed to all sections of the people of the states of the region to remain alert to thwart the divisive politics and to fight together to put pressure on the Government of India to solve the burning problems facing the region.

Bhattacharya said that being the umbrella organization of the students' bodies of the NE states, the NESO has been trying to play its part in improving the relation between all sections of people of the region. But a students' body cannot solve the boundary disputes and it is the responsibility of the Centre and the concerned state governments to deal with the issue, he added.

The NESO president said that there have been instances when boundary disputes among the NE states crop up whenever there is a move for a united movement on any major issue. The trouble broke out in the Charaipung area immediately after the constituents of the NESO extended their support to the demand of the All Assam Students' Union (AASU) for updating the National Register of Citizens (NRC) within a specific time frame.

Meanwhile, a meeting between the AASU and Arunachal Pradesh students Union will be held in Charaipung soon in presence of the common people of both the sides shortly.
