Rijiju blames Cong for NE insurgency

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, May 21 � Blaming the Congress-led UPA government�s �misgovernance, mistreatment and neglect� for the rise of insurgency in the North-east, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju today appealed to the youth to shun violence and come back to the mainstream, reports PTI.

He also took a swipe at Rahul Gandhi over his visit to farmers� houses and said the Congress vice-president �has no clue�. �He goes like a tourist to see the impact of 60 years of his party�s misgovernance,� he said.

�The power of the youth has to be channelised in the right direction. I have visited terrorism-affected areas. Recently for poll campaign, I visited Manipur where every day people live in fear of militant attacks. Some youths have deviated from the mainstream and have taken up arms against the nation because of the Congress-led UPA government�s misgovernance, mistreatment and neglect. I request them to test our government. I appeal to all such youths to return to the mainstream, this government will help you in rehabilitation, and use your potential for nation building,� Rijiju said.

Addressing the BJP�s youth wing workers at a programme today, he said he had to struggle a lot to create a base for his party to fight the Congress�s hooliganism in his home state Arunachal Pradesh. �Some people used to believe that �lotus� (BJP�s election symbol) cannot bloom in the hills and I would say that if it can bloom in Himachal Pradesh, why not in Arunachal Pradesh. It was a challenge for me to create a force of youth army to fight against hooliganism of Congress,� he said.
