SGBG urges CM to send all-party team to Merapani

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, Oct 13 � Voluntary organisation Save Guwahati Build Guwahati (SGBG) has urged Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi to send an all-party delegation to the Merapani areas on the Assam-Nagaland boundary in Golaghat district, where the Nagaland Government is indulging in encroachment of Assam areas.

In a statement here, the voluntary organisation has said that for the greater interest of the State, such a step has become a bounden duty on the part of the Chief Minister. The Chief Minister should take the Opposition parties into confidence and send the delegation to the area.

This will send a positive signal to the people living in this side of the inter-state border and instill the sense of confidence among them, the voluntary organisation said.

Minister�s assertion rejected: The voluntary organisation Save Guwahati Build Guwahati (SGBG) has rejected the assertion made by State�s Power Minister Pradyut Bordoloi that there is a link between the anti-mega dam activists and the Maoists in this part of the country, as a baseless idea. There is no Maoist link with the anti-mega-dam- stir here, claimed the voluntary organisation.

In a separate statement, the voluntary organisation has said that the Power Minister has taken recourse to such an assertion only to cover up his failure. People of the State are wholly involved in the anti-mega dam stir. The Government should come forward for a negotiated settlement of the discords on this issue, it said.

It said, the Power Minister had asserted at a seminar held at Assam Administrative Staff College in 2006 that the power scenario of the State would be improved by 2012 with the State generating power between 800 kW and 1,000 kW. But the Minister has failed to translate his assertion in to reality.
