GUWAHATI, July 14 � The Bharatiya Janata Yuba Morcha (BJYM), Assam Pradesh, has extended solidarity to the August 9 �Chalo Delhi� agitation by its national counterpart to protest the alleged rampant corruption of the UPA Government.
Mriganka Barman, president of BJYM, Assam Pradesh, informed that around 200 to 300 of its members would take part in the agitation.
It needs to be mentioned here that around 1,50,000 young men and women from across the country will assemble at New Delhi and gherao Parliament, demanding the resignation of the UPA Government.
�BJYM, Assam Pradesh has decided to stage a demonstration at Delhi on August 10, demanding eviction of Bangladeshis from Sattra land and prompt measures to counter the nefarious designs of China regarding the North East,� said Barman regretting that the Central Government has failed to realise the gravity of the matter.
The youth body will also meet the President and intimate her about the encroachment on Sattra land by the Bangladeshis. The youth body will also submit a memorandum to the President insisting necessary action in this connection.
On the other hand, the BJYM has slammed the State Government for budgetary allocation of Rs 5 crore for development of Sattras and Rs 40 crore for welfare of char areas. �This is an immature step of the Government,� said Barman, adding that the budget held no hope for the unemployed in the State.
Barman also criticised the Government for ignoring the small tea growers who have succeeded in ushering in an economic revolution in the rural areas. Demanding that the Government immediately provide patta to the small tea growers, Barman said that the Government must announce a separate package for the small tea growers.
