BURDWAN (WB), July 27 � West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today said the State Government was fully seized of the plight of refugees who had crossed over to West Bengal from strife-torn Kokrajhar and would provide all relief to them.
Best of care would be taken of those refugees who would like to stay in camps as long as they wished, she told a public rally here after attending a Railways programme.
�As long as they (Assam refugees) want to stay in camps in our State, we will provide food, shelter and treatment and do whatever is possible for them. They are our guests,� she said, adding her government considered it a social responsibility to provide shelter to them.
Banerjee said she was against riots and her government would always resist them. �There is no place for those who want to disturb harmony... Any attempt to foment trouble will be strongly resisted.�
The Chief Minister appealed for maintaining peace and harmony in Assam. �Since I did not comment on it, many people have tried to play politics with it,� she said and blasted CPI(M), which had sent a Left Front legislature party team to refugee camps at Kumargram, Barovisa and other areas in the border areas with Assam.
