Guwahati, Oct 5 (UNI) Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today blamed the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB), a militant outfit, for recent carnage in north Assam.

The NDFB, however, denied the allegation and said the Muslim militant groups were involved in the violence.

As Mr Gogoi threatened to withdraw the ceasefire agreement with NDFB if the outfit continued to go for violence.

However, NDFB's organising secretary R Baouthal said they were not involved in violence.

Meanwhile, the opposition political parties led by Chandra Mohan Patowary would visit the affected areas tomorrow.

AGP president Chandra Mohan Patowary and AGP(P) president Prafulla Kumar Mahanta today demanded that the Chief Minister should step down for failing to protect the lives of ''innocent people'' and expressed surprise how the miscreants could unfurl ''Pakistani flag'' in the strife-torn areas.
