Gogoi govt encouraging communal violence in Assam: BJP
The BJP on Wednesday accused the Assam government of fanning communal violence to "divert attention from its failures" in containing illegal immigration and also "anti-national activities" of a student organisation.
"Assam government is instigating and encouraging communal violence in various parts of the state to divert attention from its failure to contain anti-India attacks in Kokrajhar. It has been silent and remained a mute spectator to the violence unleashed by the goons of All Assam Minority Students Union (Aamsu)," BJP spokesperson Tarun Vijay said.
He alleged that the Tarun Gogoi government is trying to shield the culprits and is giving them a free hand to attack the Assamese people.
"The Centre must immediately take stern action against the fundamentalist and fascist anti-national elements like Aamsu and ban Aamsu, as it is another form of SIMI in Assam," Vijay said.
