Thwart attempts to divide Assamese society

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, May 8 � A group of conscious citizens including noted scholars Hiren Gohain, Deba Prasad Baruah, Renu Devi, Upen Rabha Hakacham and Mohammed Taher, eminent poet Nilamoni Phukan, veteran journalist Radhika Mohan Bhagawati and political organizer Dilip Patgiri, has appealed to both the Bodo-speaking and the Assamese-speaking people not to fall prey to the ill-design of a section of vested interest circles, which is trying to create a division between the two groups.

�People of both the groups should remain alert and maintain calm to ensure that the unity and integrity of the Assamese society is maintained,� a press release issued by the group stated.

The press statement while criticizing the �irresponsible handling� of the situation on the CJM court premises on the day when Ranjan Daimary was being produced, further stated that the vested interest circle is conspiring constantly to create a division among the people.

The conscious citizens also took exception to the double standard adopted by the police in preventing the family members of Ranjan Daimary from meeting him on the court campus, contrary to their approach towards the ULFA leaders Arabinda Rajkhowa and Raju Baruah. Moreover, people were allowed to greet the ULFA leaders on the court campus with gamochas.

The citizens while condemning the October 30, 2008 serial blasts, however, opined that until Daimary's offences are proved in the court of law, he should not be treated as a 'held responsible� for the said blast incidents.

Meanwhile, Assam Police has clarified that there has been no discrimination whatsoever in the treatment meted out to Ranjan Daimary.

�The leaders of both the organizations (NDFB and ULFA) were produced at the CJM court in the same manner and the persons protesting at the venue of the court were arrested as per law. The facilities like allowing visitors to meet the arrested leaders of both the organizations, accommodation, food, medical check up are provided at par without any difference,� an Assam Police release stated.
