Political parties, student bodies slam Govt move

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 17 � A number of political parties and student bodies here have expressed resentment at the proposed Supra State of Nagaland.

The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Assam Pradesh, have opposed the proposed constitution of a Supra State of Nagaland and demanded of the Tarun Gogoi government to explain the definition of a Supra State to the people of Assam.

The AGP pointed out that this formula of a Supra State will create more conflict in the region and the vexed border dispute will escalate. Slamming the Central Government for deliberating with this concept of a Supra State, the AGP said that any solution to the long standing problem in the region must be multi lateral. �We want peace in the region and not conflict,� said the AGP.

On the other hand the BJP said that it wanted lasting peace in the North East but not at the cost of Assam. The party demanded to know whether the Central Government had discussed the matter with the Assam Government. The party added that creation of a Supra State will foment more trouble in the region.

The All Assam Students Union (AASU) and the Asom Jatiyabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) have strongly opposed the concept of a Supra State of Nagaland and warned that they would vigorously resist any attempt of the Government of India to include parts of Assam in the proposed Supra State.

The AASU has called upon both the State Government and the Central Government to make their stand clear on the Supra State.

The AJYCP said that the Central Government in an effort to appease the NSCN (IM) was pushing the idea of a Supra State without considering about the people of Assam.

�People of Assam and other States of the North East have been protesting against the idea of a �Greater Nagalim� and now the Central government has come up with the concept of a Supra State that is more dangerous to the region,� said the AJYCP demanding of the Government of Assam to take cue from Manipur which has already opposed the idea.
