BONGAIGAON, July 13 � Minority student bodies suspect a link between the violence on minorities in the BTAD and the ongoing infighting in the ruling Congress Government in the State.
The All Assam Minority Student�s Union�s (AAMSU) general secretary Rezaul Karim Sarkar expressed this doubt while reacting against the incident in which four petty traders belonged to minority community were abducted by some armed miscreants on Thursday evening from �I-Love-You Bazar� under Gobordhona Police Station in Baksa district.
Condemning the incident, the AAMSU activists staged a one-hour blockade on Saturday from 11 am on 31 C National Highway at Bortola near Chirang district head quarters Kajalgaon and burnt the effigy of Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi amid slogans. In Bijni subdivison of Chirang district also, the AAMSU activists burnt the effigy of the Chief Minister in protest against the same incident.
The All BTAD Minority Student�s Union (ABMSU) general secretary Lafiqul Islam also blamed Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and the ongoing infighting in the Congress government for the fresh violence in BTAD.
Islam said, �The letter which had been given from the State Home Ministry to the National Investigation Agency to probe the BTAD violence in Baksa district was vague, hence the probe agency did not take up the case�.
Islam added that whenever the dissidents camp of the ruling Congress fail to achieve their desired aim, violence erupts upon the minority people here.
