GUWAHATI, May 12 (PTI): A section of Congress leaders in Assam today

held coalition partner Bodoland Peoples' Front (BPF) responsible

for the recent violence in BTAD and urged the party leadership to

snap ties with it.

"The recent violence was the outcome of provocative statements made

by BPF leaders following the Lok Sabha elections and may be the NDFB(S)

was used by political parties to carry out the attacks," senior Congress

legislator and former Minister Anjan Dutta told reporters at Sibsagar.

Violence broke out in Baksa and Kokrajhar districts after BPF leader

and former Agriculture Minister Pramila Rani Brahma's alleged statement

that the minorities had not voted for their candidate."We demand the party leadership consider snapping ties with the

BPF and recommend a CBI inquiry into the recent violence," said Dutta,

who was flanked by two other party MLAs Debabrata Saikia and Sushanta

Buragohain.

He also demanded immediate amendment of the Bodoland Territorial

Council (BTC) Accord.

The Congress leader also came down heavily on alleged dissidence

by a section of state ministers and legislators demanding the removal

of Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi.

"Those ministers and Parliamentary secretaries opposing the Chief

Minister should immediately resign. We will not allow the removal

of the Chief Minister even if Congress gets less seats in the Lok

Sabha polls," he added.

He also demanded the immediate dismissal of Border Development Minister

Siddeque Ahmed for allegedly supporting the AIUDF openly.

He said a delegation of 27 Congress legislators would go to Delhi

on May 22 and apprise the high command of the alleged dissident activities

in the party's state unit.
